Hi all,

I need to detect if UAC is on during installation.
So far, I had done this successfully using the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\EnableLUA key.

On WIN8, this key is no longer initialized when setting UAC on/off, therefore no longer usable for UAC detection.

I would appreciate your help with this,
Thanks,
Sharon.
