Windows 7 Enterprise laptop in Active directory (Server 2008 and server 2003 mixed)
I try to install touchpad application on Lenovo ThinkPad T510.It has 2 exe files (one is update) and hotkey application.
I log on under local admin account to that laptop
Hot key application installs as expected - UAC asks whether I want to install it,and then installs application
TouchPad application - UAC asks whether I want to install it,then start installation and error message is displayed :" To install this application,the local security policy option "User Account Control - Detect application installation and prompt for elevation" should be enabled
Why I can install many other applications but not that one.As I said,I log on as local admin

For some reason, Windows is "seeing" this application as a threat.
I would temporarily disable UAC and try installing the application.

You can just set the option, and then don't have to turn of UAC. I would also try turning off UAC to test.
