Can't run VB6 app on Vista

I'm trying to create an Install CD so that my VB6 app can run on Vista.  When I try to run the app I get a run time error '75'.
I conclude that this is a Vista UAC issue...
What is the work around/solution?
I don't want to have users right click and select Run As.
Is this an issue with VB.net as well?

Runtime error 75 is a path or file access error. It means your VB6 program tried to read/write to a path or file it doesn't have access to. This is not a UAC issue.

Vista imposes stricter restrictions on what programs are and are not allowed to see on the computer, particularely users that do not have administrator priviledges.

Have you attempted to debug your vb6 program to identify where the error is actually occuring?

The error was indeed a UAC issue.  My program was attempting to modify a file in the system32 folder.  I simply moved the file to another, unprotected, folder.
