Install problem when face UAC
Posted on 2009-07-08
I'm an application developer, the program that I design was in .Net Framework 2.0 and I was using WS 2005 for VB and SQL Express to develop my application. My application will base on application start up path to attach the database and get some application setting and it was run perfect on XP and WIN server 2003 but recently I have few client that use Vista (All Edition) or WIN Server 2008 (All edition) was unable to run my application.
The problem was occur under UAC setting, one they turn on the UAC, the application that install under C:\Program Files\My Application\ will also create under Users\User\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\My Application and window will always point to Users folder to get the database file and setting which my default was select the database file on application startup patch.
Can any one help on me on this issue?
