File Virtualization and UAC
I have installed some 32-bit apps using "Run as Administrator". The installers have written files to a sub-folder within C:\Program Files\... and to Registry keys within HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/...
If I now run the app as a user with UAC Off I think that it will read from and write to those above locations quite happily. Is that correct?
If I run the app as a user with UAC On, and selecting "Run as Administrator", I think that it will read from and write to those above locations quite happily. Is that correct?
But if I run the app as a user (even one who is an administrator) with UAC On will it read from those above locations but write to the virtual locations?
Then next time I run with UAC On how does the app know to use the Virtual locations?
