Hi

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?

Thank

bottom is how i connect to database
If is local user the connection string will be
 

strConnection = "Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|MyApplication.mdf;Integrated Security=True;Connect Timeout=30;User Instance=false"
 

If is network then connection string will be
 

            Dim dtServer As New DataTable

            Dim lDataset As New DataSet

            Dim ExportPath As String = Application.StartupPath & "\FMerge_Info.lic"

            Dim fs As New FileStream(ExportPath, FileMode.Open)
 

            gf_LoadNetworkConnectionbutton = True

            'Read import data from xml

            lDataset.ReadXml(fs)

            fs.Close()
 

            dtServer = lDataset.Tables(lDataset.Tables.IndexOf("M_FinmergeServer"))

            If dtServer.Rows.Count > 0 Then

                With dtServer.Rows(0)

                    myServer.IsNetwork = .Item(0)

                    myServer.ServerName = .Item(1).ToString

                    myServer.UserId = .Item(2).ToString

                    myServer.UserPassword = .Item(3).ToString

                End With
 

                If myServer.ServerName <> "" Then

                    strConnection = "Data Source=" & myServer.ServerName & ";Initial Catalog=" & strDbFilename & _

                                    ";User ID=" & myServer.UserId & ";Password=" & myServer.UserPassword
 

                    If CheckConnectionString(strConnection) = False Then

                        gf_LoadNetworkConnectionbutton = False

                        gclsError.gf_ErrorHandler("TestConnectionFailed", Windows.Forms.MessageBoxButtons.OK, Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon.Error, False)

                    End If

                Else

                    gf_LoadNetworkConnectionbutton = False

                End If

            End If

Open in new window

Hi all I already found out the solution which is just don't install the application under Program Files then UAC will not move the program under the Users folder.

But

The next problem will come out which is when attach the DB if you install the application under Root folder with UAC is turn on, you were unable to attach the DB because the permission for Full control was not tick

Soluation give the full permission for Authetication User then you were able to attach the DB if you run from script or If you run from SSME just run as admistrators then you will able to attach the DB
