Re: Nice one Google
The problem is it would not be accessing c:\Program Files\ but a virtual path that Vista creates for it! It's a good security measure and one that has been in place for years and nobody respected, now Vista enforces it.
In order to acess Program Files folder you have to create an install according to Microsoft's rules and ask admin permission when instaling.
If that's how you say, Chrome went the easy way and used the user's home directory.
I am now into iOS and Android app development. Want an app? I might help.
