Running windows 7 sp1.
I have an application that when installed via MSI requires the program's exe to run with elevated credentials.
When I rename the exe it no longer runs with elevated privileges. Is this because of a manifest file that was embedded in exe when it was compiled or how the MSI installed it? How can I prevent it from running as an admin without renaming it?
Edit: I don't think I was clear in what I was really asking. Will the program have to be recompiled by the developer to remove this behavior?
