    Running Windows XP Professional. Have a very old version of Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing (version 15). Need to have 4 students run the program without having access to the administrator password.

    Can anyone give me detailed instructions on how to make a program always run as administrator. If the user runs it with "run as.." from a short cut on their desktop, it works great. But they have to put in the administrator's password. Is there a way to set it up so they csn just launch the program from their user account and not need the password?

    I have been trying to figure this out for 2 days and have tried everything I can think of.

    Thanks for any help.
