4) Create a task in Task Scheduler to run the app with administrator permissions. This is impractical because the machine administrator password has to be written into the task.

Not necessarily - you might be able to get away with ticking the "Do not store password" option. The task would only have access to local resources, but it sounds like that's all you need.

Alternatively, you could adjust the permissions on the relevant files / folders / registry keys to give the standard user the required access.

Or, if the older application doesn't have a manifest, you might be able to get away with file and registry virtualization:
