Just experimented, and you are dead right.  The flag becomes unset.
Unfortunately I can't work out what is going on, because I have XP and
Vista, and the former doesn't report that property.  Nevertheless,
setting it on Vista, then creating an install on XP and installing
back on Vista loses the flag somewhere along the way.  Darn it.  It
just doesn't seem very professional when you ask people to start
twiddling within Vistas under-garments.....

Just a thought.... What happens if you set 'run as administrator' on
an executable, then zip that executable up, then unzip it on the other
system?  The zip file _might_ include that information.  Although if
the second system is XP then it might be asking a lot to expect that
bit to be carried over from Vista.
