I would like to take a local INI file that a piece of software needs
to write to and make it accessible by ONLY the administrator account
so I can hide the actual location of the data on the server.  The
location of the data is written in the INI file.  The software also
needs to be able to write to this INI file.  I would like to run the
software from a shortcut as the administrator account without user
intervention.  Currently the only way I can "run as" is if the
credentials for the "run as" account are entered every time the
application is run by the user, which will not work for me.

Is there a way to force "run as" without user intervention?  My
workstations are running a mixture of XP and 2K.

Thank you
