Manually enhance .Net program's permissions?

E

Hello,

I am not a .Net programmer, and hopefully I've picked the right forum.
My company uses a .Net-based utility program that when not run with
administrator permissions, disables certain functions, crashes, and
displays other odd behaviors. All our users run in a locked-down
environment for security, and we don't really want to enhance their
permissions. We have complained to the vendor, but for the foreseeable
future, there will be no official workaround or fix. I can think of
other ways to tackle this problem, but knowing something about .Net's
security.config file, was curious if there is a way to manually add an
exception for this program? I did spend some time experimenting with
the .Net Configuration 1.1 program, but couldn't seem to find an
executable that it recognizes as a "managed assembly". It does have
its own .manifest file. Unfortunately, the only example I have to work
with is a web-based .Net program that uses UrlMembershipCondition to
allow access to a URL. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Todd

There is no way we can tell you yes or no. We have no idea what the program
does or what security settings it expects to be present.
