Hi,

When you run the setup files of some applications in Vista, like Adobe Captivate, the user is prompted for a UAC window (by default). This carries the company name and the application name.

This is not about just the application but any executable file.

If I was able to make my application automatically request elevation to administrator level, how can I set the company name and the application name?

This can't possibly driven by a verification system over the Internet to Thawte or Verisign right? Even computers that are offline can show these messages.

What should I do to add this authentication information to my executable?

I think if you right click > properties it you can set the information there.

I believe all of this information is stored in the executable during compile. What language are you using?

I use C++ (Qt C++ GUI Framework).

Qt is a c++ library to create GUI applications that work on all operating systems.

@Blainsch That information is not editable.
