We have a Windows executable which we use to lock down the desktop and launch Internet Explorer in kiosk mode. The application is e-assessment - we need to be able to run the assessment in a locked down manner to stop students accessing the internet or the local machine.
The program works, and we have been using it on XP machines for a few years now. Now on Windows 7 machines we are getting a User Account Control Warning asking if we want the executable to make changes to the computer (see attached image). My question is, why are we getting this warning on Windows 7 ? Is it something about the executable? Why does it think the executable will "make changes" ? Thanks.
