Windows 7 Enterprise edition has an application installed that worked in XP just fine, but on Win7 requires to be run as admin. Users cannot run application, how do I install this application to run in Windows 7 like it does in XP? The program works when using admin credentials.

As you know, Win7's default permissions on both file and registry are much, much tighter than XP's were. Using your favoured process watcher, you need to locate the areas to which the application requires write access and use either the LockPermissions/LockPermissionsEx table [shudder] or your favoured ACL-setting tool to set the required permissions.
