I am running PC Bible Study 3.1 (old software) in compatibility mode in Vista. It is in Windows 95 compatibility mode with the box checked that says "Run as Administrator"

The app runs, but everytime I launch it it brings up a "UAC window that says

"An unidentified program wants to access your computer"
Joshua.exe is the program it is asking about (Joshua.exe is needed for PC Bible Study, I believe)
Is there anyway I can launch this program with having the UAC window pop up every time.

Note the app icon has a vista shield on it.

Thanks

You'll have to set your firewall to allow it.

I added it to the firewall, but am not sure if I did it right or what you mean. It says in the UAC popup it wants to access my computer.

I'm not familiar with the application. If it's an online study, then you need to allow it.

No it is an old windows 95, 98, ME application and has to be run in compatibility mode, but I don't want to see the UAC popup everytime I launch it.

Update: the app will now run out of compatibility, but still triggers UAC

If you right click on it and "run as Admin", does UAC still pop up?

The best way is to turn off UAC
Control Panel> User accounts> turn off uac

You could use this app
Click on me
But don't forget it is an app written by someone other then Microsoft.
Make a restore point 1st.
