What type of program is this? Any program that asks for access to the entire
system is going to need aministrator permissions.
If a program is completely compatible with Vista, it should not be prompting
for permissions. Here is some information, originally posted by MVP Jimmy
Brush that describes this process.
Windows Vista does not control the UAC prompts - your application does.
It is up to your app to include a manifest file (either compiled into
the app or as a seperate file, yourapp.exe.manifest) that tells
Windows Vista how it needs to run.
Your app can tell vista one of three things:
- It never needs admin privileges, even if the user is logged in as an
- It needs admin privs if the user is an admin, but it can also run if
the user is not an admin (highestAvailable)
- It must have admin privs to run, and standard users cannot run it
If your application has no manifest, then the first option (no admin
privs) is assumed, unless your app is determined to be an installer,
then the third option (requiresAdministrator) is assumed.
