[wdmaudiodev] Problem writing to endpoint property store using Standard user account on Vista

I'm seeing a problem writing to the endpoint property store from an application or from a property page extension in the Sound control panel when running on a Standard user account. When doing an OpenPropertyStore() on the default endpoint's MMDevice with either STGM_READWRITE or STGM_WRITE, the call fails. Opening the property store with STGM_READ still works, though. However, the exact same code (with STGM_READWRITE specified) works on an administrator account. Could this be a problem with unsigned drivers or APOs? I noticed the problem in RC1, and it's still there in RC2. The problem doesn't happen with the built-in system effects, but does happen with my custom APO. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Mike
