User Account Control: Only elevate UIAccess applications that are installed in secure locations
This security setting will enforce the requirement that applications that request execution with a UIAccess integrity level (via a marking of UIAccess=true in their application manifest), must reside in a secure location on the file system. Secure locations are limited to the following directories:
- \Program Files\, including subdirectories
- \Program Files (x86)\, including subdirectories for 64 bit versions of Windows
Note: Windows enforces a PKI signature check on any interactive application that requests execution with UIAccess integrity level regardless of the state of this security setting.
The options are:
- Enabled: An application will only launch with UIAccess integrity if it resides in a secure location in the file system.
- Disabled: An application will launch with UIAccess integrity even if it does not reside in a secure location in the file system.
