Seperate shortcut to run a program in administrative mode?

Seperate shortcut to run a program in administrative mode?

I just installed StandaloneStack2 on Windows 7. I have a link to open it in my start menu to configure it which has to be run in administrative mode. I have a link pinned to my taskbar where it shouldn't be run in this mode as I have to go through the dialogue. Unfortunately, changing whether it runs in administrative mode (in the compatibility settings), seems to affect both shortcuts. I assume this is because compatibility mode settings are stored for the program, not for the shortcut

"Right Click on shortcut
Select [Properties]
Select [Advanced...] button in the [Shortcut] tab
Check ""Run as Administrator"" checkbox
[Ok] button
[Ok] button

P.S. Do not set ""Run as Administrator""
from [Compatibility] tab :)"

In Vista, I use normal shortcuts, and select Run as Administrator from the context menu when needed.
