Not as stupid as it sounds ;)
I have a third party app that I have no source for. Official support is for XP and higher - but higher only with UAC off. Which I do not want.
Now, I know the programmers and they are willing to make a change if it is not too much work and I can tell them WHAT Needs to be done.
I know that the app, which starts multiple executables, does not get network connection when I start it without elevated priviledges - but it seems no port that is open is in the loer range (as per netstat -b
Is there any guideline on trying to find out WHY an app needs elevated priviledges? THe applicaiton is business critical - and this currently subverts secutiry as users must be local admins. If anyone has an idea - once I find the reason I am sure I can get the vendor implement a change.
