Dear Sir:

When installing my driver in Vista, i would try below 2 ways to install.

Method 1:
1. Components assigned my some files to <WINDIR>\Temp\
2. I use dll file under <WINDIR>\Temp\ to install(SetupCopyOEMInf)
3. Install completely
This method needs to click "Run as Administrator" to succeed.

Method 2:
1. Assigned my some files to Support Files
2. I use dll file under SUPPORTDIR to install(SetupCopyOEMInf)
3. Install completely
This method doesn't needs to click "Run as Administrator" to succeed.

Why Method 2 doesn't click "Run as Administrator" and succeed,
but methos 1 need?

Maybe stupid question, but please teach me.
Thanks.
