I'm not an administrator when UAC enabled
Hello,

I don't know if this is the right place to post this question but if not may
someone could advise me where would be a better place.

I have a VB6 application that creates an ODBC System datasource on the fly.
However, with UAC enabled it will not create the ODBC datasource. I believe
the problem may be associated with the fact that it thinks I am not an
Administrator (with UAC on) but I am! I added some code to test using the
funtion "IsUserAnAdmin" and it returns no when UAC is enabled and yes when
UAC is turned off. I'm thinking if I could find out why it says I'm not an
administrator (and I could get it elevated), that I would be able to
programmatically add a data source.

Any ideas?


Thanks,

Vic

I was able to resolve this by adding a User DSN programmatically instead of
a System DSN
