    Hello All,

    I have a small office network consisting of 4 computers. I used the homegroup option to setup my network. The "Server" is running Win 7 pro. The other terminals are Win 8.1.pro. The standard user accounts on the Win 8.1 units are driving me crazy. There is one program everyone in my office needs to be able to access. UAC requires an admin password every time a standard user tries to launch it. Is there any way to allow all users in my homegroup to launch the program with admin rights bypassing the UAC prompt? I have tried a lot of suggestions- don't want to overwhelm with all the details but will provide if needed. My networking skills peaked during Win XP, so I'd say I am a novice at this stage. Thanks in advance.
