Support Request: Cannot launch Configure SiteKiosk app w/out admin password

Description

We are evaluating SiteKiosk, using a normal PC used for everyday work. Since employees do not have admin rights, our help desk supplied admin credentials to install SiteKiosk. Installation and initial configuration proceeded normally. However, now the Configure Site Kiosk app requires an admin password to launch.

Our support staff want to know if providing our normal user account with admin rights to the C:\Program Files (x86)\SiteKiosk\ directory will solve this problem.

The PC is running Windows 7 Enterprise.

This is a security feature. Providing admin rights to the C:\Program Files (x86)\SiteKiosk\ directory will not work. To open or change the SiteKiosk configuration you need to have local admin rights. (The executable is marked as "requireAdministrator").
