Language(s): English.
Product(s): Windows and Windows 7.
Audience(s): Pro Dev/Programmer.
The most common application compatibility issue that users and developers face is when an application fails upon checking the operating system version. A lot can go wrong when version checking is misused, a user might experience a silent fail where the application simply fails to load and nothing happens. Learn about ways to work around and fix version control problems in your applications. With the advent of User Access Control (UAC) in Windows Vista, applications run with standard user privileges by default.   Attend this webcast to learn how some programs fail with access denied errors, how operating systems apply some heuristics, and how to overcome these heuristics. BenkoTips Live and On Demand brings events to you. This webcast series is dedicated to helping developers explore the possible.
