Using _MY_ W7 (ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin field set to zero) ...
= Using "my" administrator account
- from 32-bits cmd (unelevated): regedit opens
- from 64-bits cmd (unelevated): dito
- from 32-bits bash (unelevated): dito
- from 64-bits bash (unelevated): execution denied <====
- from 64-bits bash (elevated): regedit opens
= Using an standard user account
- regedit opens in all cases (w/o requiring consent)
