Can you exclude certain files from UAC?

User Access Control is an all or nothing feature. It is either on or off. I personally like to keep it on. On my servers, I have UAC prompt for consent for administrators. I know when I’m going to set off UAC. This keeps it in place and still helps to provide protection. For my clients, it keeps technical support cost down by helping to prevent users from damaging the clients they use.
Some applications do not like to use UAC. To date, you can not exclude certain applications of OS functionality from UAC. I found a possible work around on Martin Zugec’s blog. Give it a through testing prior to use.
