    This program works only in admin accounts, not standard accounts.

    This program requires .NET Framework 4.0.

    The newest version, unlike what the review states, uses the icon from the target executable.

    I recommend automatically starting the program's Tracer.exe elevated at user logon by following the instructions at http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/67503-task-create-run-program-startup-log.html; skip steps 10 and 11. Tracer.exe needs to be running elevated in order to elevate other programs on demand.

    No need really - just a time saver, especially if doing lots of these.
