        Description

        When JDK 1.5.0_07 is installed on a Windows Vista machine, some programs in the bin directory have a small shield icon tagged to the original icon. When such a program is executed, a UAC (User Account Control) dialog is popped out prompting for an administrator password. After the password is provided, the program can be executed. However, after the app finishes, another dialog titled "Program Compatibility Assistant" shows and says "Windows detected that this program did not install correctly".

        These programs include --
          appletviewer
          apt
          extcheck
          HtmlConverter
          idlj
          jar
          jarsigner
          javac
          javah
          javap
          jconsole
          jdb
          jps
          jstat
          jstatd
          native2ascii
          packager
          rmic
          serialver

        Some of these tools may be called by other programs that results in a silent fail. See this netbeans bug report --

        In JRE/bin, jucheck and jusched are also shielded, which means the auto update utility cannot be loaded automatically when Windows is started.
