AccuZIP6 Window Menus cut off at top in Vista

Post by Eric » Thu Mar 06, 2008 8:29 am

In Microsoft Vista, you may notice that your windows in AccuZIP6 are cut off at the top where you would normally see the X button to close the window.

The Title Bar disappearance occurs because when you open AccuZIP6, you are opening as “Run as administrator”. When you open AccuZIP6, you should always see the Cancel/Allow dialog box from the Vista OS. To ensure that this dialog appears when you Open AccuZIP6, please follow these steps to setup Vista properly.

1. Click Start > Control Panel
2. Click “Control Panel Home” in the left corner
3. Click “User Accounts”
4. Click “User Accounts” again
5. Click “Turn User Account Control on or off”
6. Click “Continue” when prompted
7. Check “Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer”
8. Click “OK”
9. You may have to Restart.

Now each time you open AccuZIP6, you will be prompted with a Cancel/Allow dialog. Click Allow and everything will appear as normal. The reason for this is that Vista has two levels of Administration: Global and Local to the application you are running.
