    I want to know if it is possible to set permanent permission to execute a
    program that requires an administrator password every time you run it logged
    in as a regular user. Thanks

    Hello,

    This scenario is not supported.

    However, if you are using Vista ultimate or business, there is a
    complicated, technical way to "make" this work, but it is nowhere
    close to being secure - it allows malicious or curious standard users
    and malicous applications to easily gain administrative access to the
    computer.

    You can do this by enabling the built-in administrator account and
    using it with the /savecred option of the runas command-line utility.
