Does Vista prevent changes in Program Files directory?

I have a program developed for Windows XP, but when I try to install
it in Windows Vista, I get an error message saying that the SQL
database (sqlite3) is read only. Is that due to a feature in Windows
Vista?

Maybe. Starting with Vista MS got serious about not having a writable file under
"Program Files". Writable files should be (opinion varies) either in My Documents or
one of the Application Data folders.

Where is the database?

Sounds like you may have to "Run as Administrator" instead of just Run.
