Thanks to both you and Ken. I did some poking around and found you can 
do this:

    1. Right-click the program icon and click Properties.
    2. On the Property sheet, click the Compatibility tab.
    3. Under Privilege Level, select the Run this program as an 
administrator check box, and then click OK.


Elsewhere I also found this note: Since you’re running this program with 
administrative privileges you’ll be prompted by UAC every time you use 
the software as a security precaution.
