Given that a BA might run elevated (explicit elevation, requireAdministrator manifesting) hyperlinks should be opened unelevated so an unsuspecting user isn't running a browser elevated.

Effects of replacement from ShellExec to ShelExecUnelevated leads to the fact that links on Windows XP stop working at all.
Reason: Flag SWC_DESKTOP method IShellWindows :: FindWindowSW not supported on Windows XP. (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/cc836568(v=vs.85).aspx)
