"For the purposes of this virtualization, Windows Vista treats a
process as legacy if it's 32-bit (versus 64-bit), is not running with
administrative rights, and does not have a manifest file indicating
that it was written for Windows Vista."
Our installation will most likely require Admin/Credentials, at least
for initial install, because we default to Program Files and we write
'stuff' to HKLM. From this and the above snippet of your linked
article, can i take from this that Virtualization will not come into
play during our install process?
