We would like to bypass Interface Privilege Isolation (UIPI) for some applications by specifying UIAccess = true in manifest files. Is it possible to add our own folder as a secure location like,

    Hi there,

    It is not configurable. You can see in the link that Relatively secure locations are limited to the following directories:
    \Program Files\ including subdirectories
    \Program Files (x86)\ including subdirectories for 64-bit versions of Windows

    So it is limited to only certain directories.

    Thank you all for supports.

    Is this a good option -
    i.e Disable User Account Control: Only elevate UIAccess applications that are installed in secure locations and completely rely on the signing mechanism.
