When when logged in as a local admin - processes don't run with higher privileges. Did you try doing a run as for this process? While UAC was enabled? "Run as" worked, but wasn't always called. It's not a universal option, that was apparently the problem. You can right click the shortcut for the app and check the box to make it run that way. Only some apps. That's why I could test with Notepad. huh? what app can you not right click and check the box to always run as admin?
