on some Windows 7 machine,
notepad.exe can launch from desktop
but lots of Windows 7 machine, no matter x86 or x64, it cannot start. no error no warning, just silently quit, like you never click on it before.
Is there any policy or system setting to block this?
I thought it is quite common to copy
notepad.exe to anyplace and run it, lots of Windows installer sample do this.
