Administrator and non admin privileges in windows 8.1 and windows 10

    Question

  • We have a question related to UAC settings.

    For same UAC settings on two different O/S we are observing different results. Because of this our product is behaving differently.

    Below are the details,

                    We have created a simple console application to write data to registry in all 3 branches (HKLM, HKUsers, Current User) and ran tool in non-admin mode with UAC ON and below are the behaviors.

    HKLM Write access

    HKUser Write access

    Current User Write access

    Machine 1(Windows 10)

    No

    Yes

    Yes

    Machine 1(Windows 10)

    No

    No

    Yes

    We are wondering why we are getting different behaviors though O/S is same.

    We are even seeing differences between windows 10 and Windows 8.1 OS. 

    I would like to know what am missing here.

    Regards,
