comment Why does $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] have a value of “127.0.0.1” in local environment?
@Emanuil: Only if you are unaware what 127.0.0.1 is, and that is something so far-fetched that I did not assume it.

"That's when I run PHP locally." totally answers your own question. No?

comment Windows 2008 never run a program “as administrator”
PS: Whooohoo! My scheduled task runs under an unprivileged account! If I could up-vote you twice, I would. :-) I make a copy of the original update.exe to u.exe before I begin and run the u.exe. Et voilà, the batch file runs right to the end. Thanks again!

Yes, if it would have triggered the prompt (otherwise running un-elevated) I'd know what's going on. Maybe I wasn't 100% clear, but some of the comments clearly where of the "Oh, UAC, I know what he's asking" variety, and it kinda irritates me if folks seemingly don't even read the question from top to bottom.

You were right, it's the term "update" in the file name. Kudos to you, I would never have thought of that. What an annoying half-smart heuristic. Thanks for giving the right hint!

@Ben, you might notice that I did not even use the word "prompting" and that I quite thoroughly described what I'm facing.

Thanks Ben, that's the first sensible response to what I actually asked.

@Mark. I'm not sure how else I could possibly put it. This program does not trigger UAC. It shows up in Explorer with the blue-yellow shield overlay icon even if it is not running. This means, that it will be started as elevated or not at all. This happens before the program could possibly do anything itself. It is what you normally get when you configure it as "always run as administrator", just that this isn't the case. Really, guys, read what I wrote, because I only seem to be repeating myself here.

@Bart, you do not understand me. The app does not trigger UAC. And no, I didn't write it.

comment Windows 2008 never run a program “as administrator”
@Bart: It is an auto-updater. To be clear: The program is not trying to access something restricted and that triggers UAC. Somehow it is marked by the OS that it should always run elevated. I cannot even start it as unprivileged, which is what I would like to change.
