I’ve been spending a lot of time “getting to know” Internet Explorer lately, and one topic that I wanted to understand a bit more deeply is precisely how file and registry virtualization in protected mode works. If you look at the outcome of virtualization events, here is what you see:
|Protected Mode On||Protected Mode Off|
|Per-User Area||IE Virtualization Store||Per-User Area (no virt)|
|Per-Machine Area||Access Denied||UAC Virtual Store|
Not that this probably changes your life in any meaningful way, but it resolves a bit of an internal discussion we’ve been having where it was suggested that Low IL processes don’t get UAC virt. They do – it just doesn’t help them any! :-)
