QuickBooks 2008/9 Multi-Currency Edition, which uses the legacy codebase that the non-multicurrency edition does not, elicits a UAC prompt when running on Windows 7.
The software will then run, but will not find the previous network mapped drive company file location.
We need to click the Open button which then shows us our company file and click through from there.
This is good news for us as we could not get our QuickBooks to run at all on Windows Vista in our own company domain due to the security policies in place here.
When we migrate to SBS 2008 and the new Group Policy structures available to us we may have had success with QB on Vista, but we will not go there anymore! :)
We did try to work with the Windows 7 Compatibility Mode for XP to see if that would resolve the UAC prompt but it did not.
Again, no complaints because at least it will run!
Once we migrate our domain to SBS 2008, it will be interesting to see how QB and Windows 7 work with the new GP setup.
If we have nothing but grief, there is always XP Mode on Windows 7.
