On Vista and Windows 7
- The unprivileged installer won't ask for UAC escalation and allows an ordinary user (with no administrative rights to his PC) to install Veracity for only his Windows user.
- The administrative install always asks for UAC escalation, but technically allows both an "all users" and a "current user only" install.
- There was no UAC, so it effectively makes no difference which installer you use.
Veracity 1.0 will probably have no unprivileged installer:
- Its maintenance is difficult.
- It's confusing for users.
- Corporate desktops are typically locked down with policy such that even this installer is prevented from running.
Instead there will probably be a zip file with binaries and instructions allowing unprivileged Windows users to take Veracity for a test drive.
