I have an idea but I'm not sure if this is a correct and safe solution.

When you want to install an application, you must obtain permission from 
UAC. If you have permission for the first installation, you can install 

Idea is here.
In the first installation, we will install wg-net-service with pipe 
socket with the "system" account. This service will handle network 
options (add / remove route, dns, etc.).
Wireguard uses this service via the pipe socket for communication when 
the tunnel is up or down. So you don't need any permission.
