I remoted-connected into someone's PC (using GoTOMyPC).
I attempted to install a program over there.  Vista wouldn't run my installer.  It just sat there, as if I hadn't double-clicked.  I may have gotten an hour-glass for a few seconds.
So, I figured, it doesn't like my installer.  So I manually copied the application over there.  I then attempted to run the program.  Again, Vista totally ignores my douible-click.
I did check and he does have Account Protection (or whatever it's called) turned off.  Another situation required it be turned off.
I tired rebooting - no relief
I tried compatibility mode - no relief.
