Copy virtualized registry entries to other user accounts
The hive that stores virtualized registry data, HKCR\VirtualStore\Machine\Software, can also be found in HKU\sid_Classes\VirtualStore\Machine\Software, where sid is the security identifier of the user who is currently logged on. If you want to make sure that a certain application works identically for a different user, you can copy that application's subkey to the corresponding HKU subkey for the other user.
For more information about UAC and virtualization, see "Preventing Unsafe Actions with User Account Control" on page 531 .
