Windows 7: why does windows 7 require elevation to administrator?

I don't find any html code or the word "manifest" in either of my applications. There is readable text here and there in the binary, but nothing that looks like a manifest file.

I can't find anything like that in any of the newer versions of this app that work properly, so I'm still confused.

Well either they don't have a manifest or the manifests are external resources. I searched some more and it shouldn't be a problem for an app to be without a manifest as long as the program doesn't do things that require elevated rights.

Is the app installed in the same location as the other versions that works without compatibility mode? Maybe it's something with the location of where the programs run from. Or permissions on those folders. Or that you perhaps ran it as admin or with UAC turned off at some time.

Here's an article that explains UAC Virtualization. Hopefully it explains something so maybe you can figure out what's wrong:
