security icon over program icon/shortcut

Posted: 10-01-2008, 12:55 PM

Greetings

On Vista Enterprise, a user installed Solid Works 2006. After h
installed, it ran fine, but when he restarted his PC for something,
security icon appeared over the program shortcut

He has no 'Run as Administrator' option, either on the Desktop or i
the Program Folder in the Start Menu

What gives? Any help is appreciated

It is very unlikely that Solid Works 2006 is Vista-compatible. If this is an
important program for your user, check with the software mftr. for an
updated version that works with Vista, patches, workarounds, etc. If
nothing is available you might try running the program in compatibility
mode. Refer to Vista's Help & Support for instructions. Or find another
program that is supported in Vista that will do what your user needs.
