Windows Vista includes a new feature call User Account Control (UAC) which has the potential to break many existing MSI-based setups.
UAC is a really, really important topic. Although Vista isn't released yet, I'm seeing multiple reports of broken setups. It's time to understand UAC and prepare your setup for Vista NOW!
In this presentation, the Windows Installer team at Microsoft will cover the new installation features that specifically relate to User Account Control, such as marking a package as UAC-compliant, taking advantage of UAC patching, and adding the "shield" icon to your user interface. They also address common UAC debugging issues pertaining to application installation and servicing.
Usually there's a Q&A session at the end of the presentation, so you may want to have your UAC questions and problem descriptions at hand.
