Description (last modified by phobos)

The installer does not trigger a UAC elevation prompt. Without right-clicking and running as Administrator,
the program appears to install correctly (even creating a program group) and will not start. This is due to
File and Registry Virtualization- thus I imagine the same thing happens on Vista. The files land in the user's
profile instead of the selected subdirectory of Program Files, and the shortcuts in the Start Menu point to the
proper place (in Program Files).

Which windows installer? We still use nullsoft installer for the vidalia bundle, which has the command RequestExecutionLevel user ;Updated for Vista compatibility included in the config file. This should resolve any problems on start. At least it does in my testing.
