I have an external Hard Drive.
When I connect it to XP SP3, I can edit each file ( e.g a text file ) easily and without any problems.
But when I connect it to Vista Ultimate SP1, I can't edit files and this alert shows http://i43.tinypic.com/21l06bn.png[^]
What's wrong ?
BTW , I'm dead sure that the path file is correct !!!
I was going to say that is normal behavior, because starting with Vista, root directories are protected and normal users don't have write access. But the fact that it works on an XP machine means that isn't the cause, because NTFS permissions would take effect no matter what the OS is. Can you create files in other directories on that drive when using Vista?
I need to deploy an Application but along with that i need to register few dll's. I have a C# process in install method of custom installer that runs a bat file containing commands to register dll's like
i have a small Project using WinForms as sliding Bars. On these Bars i can add Application Links by drag n drop.
This works fine under XP, but does not work for Windows Vista. I developed this App using a WinXP-VMWare Image. For testing purposes i copied the debug-Files (and also tried the Release-Files) at my Vista Computer.
The Application is running without Problems, except the Drag n Drop Feature does not Work. I tried to drag some Files from the Desktop onto my WinForms. My App is not running as Admin, but also starting the App by Admin-Rights does not help.
I posted this question on the c# forum, but they sent me here, so i'll post it here again.
situation: i have a program which has a function which needs to be run with elevated rights,but it has to be the elevated rights from another user (the domain administrator)
Maybe this is not clear at all, so i'll specify my question
user1 runs an application
user1 presses a button which results in running another application
this other application has a manifest file which says to the uac that it needs to be runned with elevated rights.
Vista prompts me if i want to run this application with elevated rights (from user1, with no posibility to give other credentials)
But i don't want this second application to be run with elevated rights from user1, but from user2 (user2 is a domain administrator, user1 is not)
Over the shoulder credentials is turned of on every pc here, so there is no way the user1 can change to user2 (his domain administrator account).
I've been googling for a solution for this problem, but i cannot find anything useful. Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction. I only want vista to prompt me for giving a user and pasword for running this application as a domain admin..
Thanks in advance to anyone who can point me in the right direction

Up until now, I've always used the "roll your own" crash handling thing that people do -- catching the crash and writing a minidump...
It's a great way to debug your software after it goes on the road.
But, occasionally I get 0 byte DMP files.... I am considering WINQUAL...
- They collect your crashes, sort them, and deliver them to you with nice reports and a new "response" system, where you can tell the user what to do...
Anyhow, my question: For those of you out there who use WINQUAL -- what do you think of it?
Does it do a better job of collecting crashdumps than I could?
It seems like one of those things the OS is better off handling, than I?

Can I get a Vista laptop to run Remote Desktop 'server' or VNC 'server' as a service, so I can connect without having to log on to the remote laptop? I have a laptop with a broken screen here at work, where I can borrow a screen. I want to set it up that at home, when it's connected to my router via cable, I can just switch it one and connect remotely. I don't want to have to log on, because I can't see most of the display, and logging on blind all the time defeats the convenience - I only need this temporarily, for a few days to get data off the machine.
