Hi all,

I am using Createfile function to open the physical disk 0 as MSDN suggest("\\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0 ").

This is working fine for me on Windows 2000, XP . But If i use it on Windows Vista RC1 Then it returns Error 5 (Access denied) even i am logged in as Administrator.

Can some one help me out about it.

Thanks

Hi davinder101,

Having logged in as admin wont be sufficient ... right click your exe and select run as administrator.

Cheers!

That's right, and to avoid having to do that everytime: right click -> properties -> compatibility -> check "Run this program as administrator"

I don't think so, that would defeat the purpose of the security feature.
