Adobe Audition 3, Windows Vista 64, and running as Administrator

Adobe Audition 3 (or at least the trial version) really wants to run as an administrator on Windows Vista 64-bit. Several hours groveling through possible resolutions from the Internets (including searching Adobe support) to diagnose the “exit on startup with the modal dialog box ‘Adobe Audition cannot find any supported audio devices. Check your device settings. [OK]” led to repeated failure. Finally just before giving up and working on something else for a while, I try to run it as an admin on a whim. It starts. !!!

So I go and check “this program wants to run as an administrator” in the properties of the start menu shortcut. Perhaps now it will actually work.
