Thank you for your replies. It's great to see you take such a proactive, enthusiastic stance with both the technology and your customers.
On another note, I ran into a behavior I'm not so sure is a bug but rather just misleading. I created a folder on the desktop and then later tried to rename it. I received three prompts including a UAC prompt. Finally, the rename failed. I was logged in as admin and had adequate permissions. After a google or two, I realized I had a word doc open that was in the folder. I closed the documents and renamed the folder without any prompts. In other words, the interaction I had with the system gave me the impression it was a security restriction of some kind and nothing about open file or anything of that sort. I know this may not be in your area but the access denied and UAC prompt was confusing. In XP it's real clear: "close down any open programs."
For what it's worth . . .
I watched your video again and caught a reply to my own comment-- some programs you don't want to run as admin even windows programs-- so they get the "more dramatic" UI. You used IE as an example. I'm assuming Meeting Place would also fit.
The only thing I would add is the fact that the title of these pop-ups state's that it's an unidentified application. Do you really want Windows not identifying IE or Meeting Place?
I may have found another bug. Running Vista Business. I disabled elevation prompts for standard users.
As a standard user, I get the expected dialog box denying my account access and not prompting me except when I try to change Windows Firewall settings. Instead, it just sits there. Specifically, I navigated to CP and selected Windows Firewall. From there, I'm selecting Change Settings. It has the Security shield next to it so I'd expect one of those "you-can't-do-this" window but I get nothing.
FYI . . .
Just have to say- EXCELLENT stuff. Love Channel 9. Keep it up.
FOR JOHN or CHRIS: I started right-clicking a bit to see the different credential windows and I noticed that when I run as elevated against Windows Meeting Space i get a unidentified program prompt saying it's an unrecognized and unsigned app.
