  • Windows 2000 to Windows Vista: Road to ​Compatibili​ty

    If you store your database in the Vista equivalent of "Document and Settings\All Users\Local Application Data\your app name\databasefile.dat" you shouldn't have any problems at all.

    Furthermore, if your application stores data in the registry, always fall back to writing in CURRENT_USER instead of LOCAL_MACHINE if you get an access denied when attempting such operations.

    I think this really will solve your problem because six months from now no one will accept an application where you need to turn off UAC.

    Just my two cents... Smiley
