Hide command line parameters to an EXE

Yesudasan Moses asked:

Open original thread

I am calling a windows C# developed EXE from my main application (C#) to register the main application. (Needed to make another EXE since it needs elevated privileges)
And, for avoiding it to open directly by the customer, I am sending a password to the exe as command line argument.
But the problem is that, When UAC messages shows for elevated privilege, It shows the whole path along with the password I sent, How can I avoid this, Please help me thanks
