How do you setup a windows application "Access Control Right"?

By trsbrn ·
How does one write a compiled (Non Java/.Net ... ) application in a way that makes proper use of Microsoft UAC (User Access Control) features, which include Control Access Rights for applications, ACL (Access Control Lists) and ACE (Access Control Entries) for users etc?

Reading through Microsoft documentation it is not clear how this all fits together and it would be good if a summary overview and some details could be provided so that it is easy for application developers to learn and implement the best practice solution for UAC.

As I understanding the process, it should be really quite straight forward/simple, and once Access Control Rights are set up, and Users have the correct ACEs then it is all down to the last step of employing calls to AccessCheckByTypeResultList function in the application.
