If I understood well, issue of Apache Monitor shortcut not being available in
Start menu under Vista is fixed and will be available in 2.2.7 - thank you for
resolving this.

When Apache installer is run under Vista it would be nice to have Apache Monitor
added to Start Up folder by the Apache installer. It would be even nicer to have
this as option in installer so user can choose whether one does or doesn't want
Apache installer to configure Apache Monitor to be started up together with
Vista. Currently, one has to add Apache Monitor manually to Start Up folder,
which isn't that bad but isn't nice either. I think it is an issue that should
be fixed in installer.

Comparing Vista to previous Windows operating systems, as I see it,
"Administrator" user has gained status similar to one that "root" user has under
Linux distributions - if this was in Windows before now it is more tangible.
Under Vista non "Administrator" user can have administrator rights but, with
User Access Control (UAC) enabled, for actions like (un)installing application
or stop/start/restart service "Administrator" has to give permission to that
action - in such situation under Linux user is asked to enter "root" user
password, while in Vista user just has to click on Continue button on UAC screen.

Currently to have Apache Monitor functional under Vista, one has to start Apache
Monitor as "Administrator". Unless Apache Monitor is started as "Administrator"
one can not stop/start/restart Apache service under Vista. It can be set
manually that Apache Monitor has to be started as "Administrator" but it is not
good solution - if one also adds Apache Monitor to Start Up folder, each time
Vista is run one will be presented with UAC screen even though Apache Monitor is
not used to stop/start/restart Apache service. This issue should be resolved by
making Apache Monitor compatible with new security features in Vista. To
accomplish this maybe "Windows Vista Application Development Requirements for
User Access Control Compatibility" document provided by Microsoft and currently
available at
http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/6/a/56a0ed11-e073-42f9-932b-38acd478f46d/WindowsVistaUACDevReqs.doc
might be useful - many blogs and similar web sites cover this topic too, just
search for e.g. Vista manifest file.

In my opinion Apache Monitor GUI shouldn't require "Administrator" permission to
be started (like it doesn't do now), but clicking on "Start", "Stop", "Restart",
and "Services" buttons within Apache Monitor GUI, which to be functional require
"Administrator" permission, should signal this to Vista so it can activate UAC
screen (and not just silently ignore privileges requirement like it does now).
