I have an application, lets call it App.exe. (Totally safe, no internet needed)
App.exe loads a driver, let's say driver.sys. It's normally in the directory where App.exe, but can also by in system32.
Files that App.exe creates have a file extension, let's say it's ".xyz"
Windows knows that .xyz files are to run App.exe (shell/command/open in registry)
When I am an administrator type,
When I double click on .xyz file, App.exe runs and all is well. I can edit .xyz file, use it, resave, everything is fine.
When I am a limited user (as I like to be most of the time for security),
No issue running App.exe using RunAs and opening the file.xyz, but that's primitive and a nuisance.
When I double click .xyz file, App.exe runs, but the driver can't load. So only parts that don't require that driver work.
Is there a solution to something like that?
I googled and googled, and all I find is registry tweaks in Win7 about how to make RunAs for the .exe file. Not for the files it opens. And not for XP.
