We are moving our platform to Windows 7 from XP. We have many MS Access applications that use SQL for the backend. Built into these applications are processes for writing new ODBC DSNs to the registry. These writes are to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI. Corporate policies dictate that I do not use the Current Machine key. Users are setup as power users no admin privileges.
The shortcuts have the full path to the MDB, no MSAccess.exe in the command line.
What can be done to bypass the UAC pop-up? How can we elevate the opening of an MDB?
