Windows: What must be taken into account if the users are working with Vista (and later)
Windows Vista (and later) proposes several improvements. These improvements bring some modifications regarding the programming, the creation of the executable or the applications installed.
Among the improvements that must be taken into account:
  • The User Account Control (UAC)
  • The manager of Windows Mobile device, required to synchronize the Mobile devices.
UAC and executable creation
To increase the security of workstations against worms and viruses, Windows Vista/7 has implemented the UAC mechanism (User Account Control).
By default, this mechanism considers that all the users (including the administrators) are standard users with reduced rights.
To run an application that requires additional rights, the UAC mechanism asks for confirmation.
See The UAC mechanism for more details.
Synchronizing the mobile devices
WINDEVWindowsWindows Mobile From Windows Vista, ActiveSync is now called "Manager for Windows Mobile devices". By default, a limited version is installed on the computers equipped with Windows Vista (and later).
To perform the synchronizations, the full version must be installed. See the Microsoft site for more details (http://www.microsoft.com/france/windowsmobile/devicecenter.mspx).
