Solution to Make jar to ask for admin rights when it is launched 

You can’t make the jar ask for admin access.

Instead, create a shortcut to java.exe -jar myjar.jar, then edit the shortcut properties, click the “Advanced…” button and check “Run as administrator“.

Now, double-clicking the shortcut to run your jar file will always run as administrator.
