    Unhappy Vista run as Administrator

    Hi all,

    Im using my app under Vista and because Im accessing the registry, I have to start my app by using Run As Administrator. To do this I just right-click on my apps exe and select the option from the drop down menu.

    I wanted to ask you if there is a way of starting my app as administrator programmatically, whithin my code. Im using VB6 SP6 for development, so no .NET solutions there.

    Thanks, John
