Standard User Analyzer

Published: June 11, 2010

Updated: June 11, 2010

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Vista

The Standard User Analyzer (SUA) tool and the Standard User Analyzer Wizard (SUA Wizard) both enable you to test your applications and to monitor API calls in order to detect potential compatibility issues due to the User Account Control (UAC) feature in the Windows® 7 operating system.

UAC, formerly known as Limited User Account (LUA), requires that all users (including members of the Administrator group) run as Standard Users, until the application is deliberately elevated, by using the security prompt dialog box. However, not all applications can run properly with the Standard User role, due to the application requiring access and privileges for locations that are unavailable to a Standard User.

Includes detailed information and step-by-step instructions for using the Standard User Analyzer Wizard (SUA Wizard) to evaluate your organization's installed applications for User Account Control (UAC) issues.
