Technical Notes for Release 1.79:

Injecting Xfire In-Game on Windows Vista with UAC is a real pain; ideally Xfire would not non-elevated, so that you would not be prompted to elevate it each time it runs. However, some games run elevated, and to inject Xfire In-Game into these games, Xfire must be elevated. Additionally, programs marked to run elevated don't properly start upon login if they are set to do so.

To solve this, we run Xfire non-elevated on Windows Vista. If you have a game installed that we know runs elevated, we then launch a second copy of Xfire, elevated, which you must allow. The two copies of Xfire communicate with each other, and the elevated one injects Xfire In-Game into games; it does nothing else.
