Re: [Nvda-dev] [Nvda-Dev] NVDA and the Vista UAC prompt

Using NVDA in the Vista secure desktop:

NVDA.EXE must also be Authenticode signed.

UAC entries will still need to be added to start NVDA in UAC and the
secure desktop. These aren't difficult.

You may want to get Narrator to start up, not NVDA, when the secure
desktop. This is a bit tricky. You have to write a program that
starts, checks whether it is in the secure desktop, and chooses to run
either NVDA or Narrator.

Best wishes,
