VB 6 File Access/Path Error on Windows 7

I've got a legacy app in VB6 composed of two programs... a "login" and a "main".  The login checks on a SQL server for a new main and vice versa.  When either is updated (which happens frequently), the appropriate program is automatically downloaded.  Anyway, some users have just begun installing Windows 7 and they get the file/path access error when the program runs.

I had a similar issue on Vista and it was a rights problem.  I had a MacBook for testing web apps so I put on Parallels and Vista to work out that problem and that has been resolved.  However, my version of Parallels won't install the Windows 7.  The copy I have came with my current notebook but also had a free downgrade to XP.  After a few hours of W7, away it went and back to XP.

I know nothing about Windows 7.  It this also a right issue?  Where on Windows 7 do I direct the users to go to appropriately enhance their access?

Thanks.

Thanks.  So the whole UAC thing that caused issues with VIsta is also part of Windows 7.  I won't be able to talk with the client until Tuesday but I'll mark this as the solution now.  I'm sure it's the problem... just like Vista.

Thanks
