  • How To: Use Vista's UAC Feature To Avoid Always Requiring Admin Rights

    Hi Guys,
             I'm having a really tough time trying to implement the elevated COM method under VB.NET. I'm not an API guru, but need to be able to migrate some of my VB.NET utils for my company to use UAC.

    I've managed to create my own custom control which implements the Shield icon via a SendMessage API call, but the actual UAC part, I'm really stuck on.

    I've segmented out my Admin functions into COM classes, but am having a lot of difficulty figuring out how to use CoCreateAdminAsInstance through VB.NET.

    There doesn't seem to be any sample code available for VB.NET so any help in explaining this to me, or assisting in any way would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance, Dan.
