Hello,

I wanted to test windows vista virtualization. Running vista business 32bit.
So I launched cmd process under administrative user running in admin
approval mode (UAC on). Entered following commands:
  cd c:\windows
  echo some data>settings1.ini
And got:
  access denied.
Checked C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore - and no files were
there.

So my process was not virtualized.
Why ?
In what circumstances processes are virtualized ?
How do I see virtualization in action - I need to understand that because
installer of my business application is virtualized.

thanks
Vilius
