So... there's a program I use wich uses vfs and hooks up other applications.
If I run this program as admin, either via shortcut or context menu, it doesnt actually work. It fails to run some hooked apps.
If I first open an elevated prompt and run the app from there it works.
How so?

Are the apps giving you trouble currently located in the VFS structure?

If not they are probably defaulting to the CSIDL settings hence running them via elevated command prompt allows them to be tokenized and thus belong to the AdministratorGroup.

You probably just need to reorganize your file structures to allow VFS structure to take full control automatically.

It is hooked by the app that manages the vfs but it is outside the vfs. But every executable is set to run as admin on their own. Shouldn't it retain the config when hooked?
