UAC Demo and Helpers

As a follow up to the UAC article I wrote some weeks ago, I compiled some demos and a helper library.

The demos show how applications behave given different manifest settings and the helper includes some useful methods like:

  • Find out if the application is currently running elevated
  • Start a process elevated
  • Restart the current process elevated
  • Start a COM DLL elevated
  • Add the shield icon to a button

Btw – excellent information about UAC internals can be found in Mark Russinovich’s talk from TechEd ’06 (151.69 KB)
