Event ID: 1032307312
Language(s): English.

Audience(s): Pro Dev/Programmer.

Windows Installer 4.0 in Windows Vista includes new features that allow application developers to take full advantage of User Account Control (UAC) when installing, updating, and uninstalling software. In this presentation, we cover the new installation features that specifically relate to User Account Control, such as marking a package as UAC-compliant, taking advantage of UAC patching, and adding the “shield” icon to your user interface. We also address common UAC debugging issues pertaining to application installation and servicing.
