Windows 7 Professional (Fully updated).

UAC seems to be preventing an Outlook Add-in from installing/running correctly. When I disable UAC and restart, it works fine. When I re-enable UAC and restart, the add-in stops working.

Is there a log that can provide more information? In the event viewer I see the following (process names have been renamed to protect the innocent :D)

<DATABASE> <EXE NAME="foo.exe" FILTER="GRABMI_FILTER_PRIVACY">
    <MATCHING_FILE NAME="foo.dll" SIZE="961024" CHECKSUM="0xFCCA9721" MODULE_TYPE="WIN32" PE_CHECKSUM="0x0" LINKER_VERSION="0x0" LINK_DATE="04/29/2010 18:16:53" UPTO_LINK_DATE="04/29/2010 18:16:53" EXPORT_NAME="foo.dll" EXE_WRAPPER="0x0" />
    <MATCHING_FILE NAME="fooagent.exe" SIZE="284560" CHECKSUM="0x60BEE68C" BIN_FILE_VERSION="5.0.0.753" BIN_PRODUCT_VERSION="5.2.0.753" PRODUCT_VERSION="5.2.0.753" FILE_DESCRIPTION="Foo Module" PRODUCT_NAME="Foo Product" FILE_VERSION="5.2.0.753" ORIGINAL_FILENAME="foo.exe" INTERNAL_NAME="foo" LEGAL_COPYRIGHT="Copyright © 2002-2011 Foo, Inc.  All rights reserved." VERDATEHI="0x0" VERDATELO="0x0" VERFILEOS="0x4" VERFILETYPE="0x2" MODULE_TYPE="WIN32" PE_CHECKSUM="0x48D1C" LINKER_VERSION="0x0" UPTO_BIN_FILE_VERSION="5.0.0.753" UPTO_BIN_PRODUCT_VERSION="5.2.0.753" LINK_DATE="08/05/2011 23:56:34" UPTO_LINK_DATE="08/05/2011 23:56:34" VER_LANGUAGE="English (United States) [0x409]" EXE_WRAPPER="0x0" />

What is GRABMI_FILTER_PRIVACY? Is that a specific rule in UAC? If so, what is it looking for?

You can download Microsoft's Application Compatability Kit. Then use either the Standard User Analyzer or Standard User Analyzer Wizard and it gives a very detailed report of any violations.

Thanks. I'll check it out. What I'm noticing is that some workstations will have problems and others won't. Not sure why. –  Mike B Jan 21 '12 at 1:30
