The UAC setting is typically set using a slider bar on the UAC Settings dialog box, accessible through the Control Panel. On certain operating system platforms, moving this setting to its lowest level
(Never Notify), disables UAC. Any other value enables UAC.
On other operating system platforms (usually those with higher security requirements – such as servers and enterprise editions), UAC cannot be disabled through the UAC dialog. That is, even when the UAC setting is at its lowest level, UAC may still be enabled.
Regardless of which environment the operating system platform is in, the Is UAC Enabled AM object checks the value of the UAC setting based on the value of the slider bar, and reports it as disabled if the setting is set to its minimum value; any other value will report UAC as enabled.
