How Can I prevent the dssamproxy.exe (WSAM) UAC (user access control) popup on windows7?

Our users do not have admin rights on their windows 7 laptops and UAC is enabled. That means that it is impossible for them to use WSAM! Tech support tells me that I have to open a "design request" to prevent this dssamproxy.exe popup. This seems crazy to me because I do not get any popups for network connect on the same machine. I understand that apps need admin rights to install, but most should not need them to run.

Anyone else facing this problem?

More investigation helped me find the easy workaround. UAC is a strange bird. Sometimes it pops up, and asks for what you think are administrator credentials, but allows you to type the current non-admin ones and it works. That seems to be the case here.

For now, I guess our users can use WSAM if they retype their credentials each time they launch it. It still seems like a waste of time and will definetely generate support calls, but at least they can work.

If someone knows a way to get rid of this popup all together, I would love to hear it.
