Hi all,
Windows Server 2008 UAC is called when I start a file which contains the word "update" in ist filename, like "abcdf_update.exe".

I there a (hidden?) way to configure UAC to ignore those files? I do not want to disable UAC at all.

    Thnaks for that links, the first one I hae allready tested (it won't work in my case, because the .exe is called be another program, I cannot use some kind of desktop link), the second one I have tested a minute ago - doesn't help.

    The issue is that a website is calling a file named "...update.exe". When I disable UAC it works fine, with UAC I get a http 500 error.
