Hello, I am using TSolFSStorage.InstallDrivers to install the system drivers for the SolFS Driver edition. This works perfectly fine on Windows XP. However a friend tested on a clean install of Vista and it came up with Access Denied exception. He even has admin rights, so not sure why it is doing that.

In vista admin rights doesn't mean administrator account. You can try calling InstallDrivers function in Installer DLL from the application called setup.exe. Vista gives additional rights to the applications that are recognized as setup applications either by some signature or if they have "setup" in their names.

Right click your application that installs th driver.
Select Run as administrator.
And then it will work.
