During our development for QuickGene here at CrimsonBase, we ran into a curious issue under Vista.
When our automatic update program is run from the Program Files directory, Vista displays the following UAC notification:
UAC notification for update.exe
Executables with update in the filename trigger UAC
The problem, we discovered, is that files compiled with update in the filename trigger UAC. You can't simply rename the file to avoid the UAC pop-up; you have to recompile the executable using a different filename.
