Quick Tip: Use ProcMon to detect permission issues

Ever wondered how to use procmon to detect permission problems inside an application?

We have created a short youtube tutorial to show you how you can use procmon to pin down the locations which are requiring more permissions.

In fact we are using an old self written demonstration tool for this purpose which tries to write to “C:\Program Files (x86)\VUEE\settings.txt”. However, ¬†we are logged in as unpriviliged user.

PS: ProcMon shows an UAC (Credentials)-Prompt which is not visible on this video.
