Program Names govern admin rights in Vista - "If Vista sees that you have created a Microsoft Visual C++ project with install in the project name, then that .exe will automatically require Admin Rights to run. Create exactly the same project, but call it, say, Fred, and the problem disappears," he explained. "Vista's security isn't just concerned with what an .exe is doing to your PC, but what it's actually called." Large software companies, by necessity, employ any number of people who may well have lots of brains but rather lack experience. When you read something like this it makes you wonder if this particular feature was written by one of those employees, and if so what the hell was their team lead doing?
