Cannot get PB12.5 to work on Windows 7

Hi Folks:

     We are trying to migrate a 12.5 PB app from Win XP to Win 7. So far without success.

     The app resides on a UNIX server.

     The app works fine with XP and will work on Win7 if the user is an adminstrator.

     Setting up user machines with admin rights is unacceptable.

     We have tried to compile with "Embedded Manifest" As Invoker -- Without Success.

     We have looked for any places that wrote to the registry -- It only writes to CURRENT_USER which we believe should be OK wiith Win7

     The app does not appear to write to the "Program Files" directory.

     We changed the Win 7 machine to allow "Create Global Objects" which works but so far is not something that management here wants to do -- either by individual machine or identifying a group.

     The app runs against an Oracle 11g database and it stops when it tries to validate a user id because it appears that the transaction object(SQLCA) is not there.

Thanks for your help
