Hi,
The installation of the application has no issues ,when application shortcut launches it throw an error on win7.I changed the compatibility mode of that exe to wix xp sp3 and the shortcut launches with out any issue.
i created a shim for this compatibility mode.the problem is when ever i try to launch the shortcut the uac appears.I tried including runasinvoker,runasadmin,runashighest shims nothing suppress this uac from appearing everytime i launched the shortcut.
Can anyone let me know how to suppress the uac.Thanks in advance.

there are 3 methods that invoke the UAC.

fusion, heuristics, installer detection.

as an example setting a manifest against an exe which is triggering because of installer detection methods will not stop the UAC prompt from showing up.

when is the UAC prompt happening during execution of the shortcut, or execution of a function of the running application?

you may need to crack open procmon to see if this is happening due to file permissions etc.
