How to disable UAC prompt for specific application

January 6th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is how you can use Microsoft’s toolkit to remove the annoying UAC prompt for specific applications.   This patch is a must for the MS-DOS CMD interpreter, as well as any command-line program which requires administrative access.

The process is as follows:

  1. Download and install the Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.0
  2. Run the compatibility administrator from the toolkit  (be sure to right click the icon to Run As Administrator)
  3. Right click on the database  under Custom Databases, select both Create New and Application Fix.
  4. Enter name of app, and browse to the executable, and click on Next.
  5. Click Next until you are on Compatibility fixes screen.  Find item RunAsInvoker, check it, click Next and finish.
  6. Select File -> Save As, and give it a name such as C:\vistasux.sdb
  7. Click Start -> All programs -> Accessories, and right-click the command prompt icon to Run as Administrator.
  8. Enter command: sbdinst c:\vistasux.sdb
    (substitute the appropriate filename you created in step 6)
