Some environments request that all users, including administrators, log into their computers using non-administrator logins.
Security Explorer returns a message that "The requested operation requires elevation"
Create a shortcut for Security Explorer on the desktop of the computer where Security Explorer is installed while logged into the machine as a Local Administrator.
Open the properties of the shortcut, select 'Advanced' and enable the option to 'Run as administrator'.
Verify functionality of application when running with Local Admin privilege.
If necessary, apply the option again with appropriate password.
