Dealing with UAC in portable tools

(1/3) > >>

Hi all,

I am not sure if addressing UAC issues in Vista and Win7 interests many of you, but I have finally bitten the bullet and implemented saving to UAC-protected folders in my tools. In the end it was not so hard, but it was not trivial either and it is easy to get stray away while looking for the easiest solution. If you decide you want your software to save to UAC-protected locations (after the user confirms that dreaded dialog box) instead of displaying an error message, you may find my latest blog entry with code snippets useful:

Now that is interesting...I didn't know MS had its own rabbit hole in UAC, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for writing that and pointing us to it.
I utterly detest UAC!

UAC = Universal Acclaimed Cruelty?

(Actually I rather like it from an administrative standpoint)
