hey! my sample won’t build in Program Files on Vista

Windows SDK samples are installed by default (you can change this during setup) under the current user’s Program Files folder in the following path:

\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0\samples

On Vista, samples that install to \Program Files are read only, ensuring that samples are preserved in a pristine state. In order to write to a sample, you’ll need to copy that sample to another location.

We made this decision after polling users and MVPs. What’s your opinion? Should samples install to a writeable location in future SDK releases?
