After installing on Windows 7, there is a box that comes up on first use about Administrator rights.  This is created by launching the advertised shortcut.  To suppress this warning box, you'll need the have an existing objects.cpo file, stored in AppData\Local\Adobe\Captivate 5.5\objects\objects.cpo. 

If I just create that objects folder before running the advertised shortcut, it gets overwritten with the settings.  However, if the captivate 5.5 folder is copied in before running Captivate, that suppresses that warning box and the advertised shortcut doesn’t need to create the folders.
