Indeed thanks to all the developers. However, it is not officially done
yet, is it? I notice that there is still no setup.exe available for it
on the main page. I'm in a bit of limbo state, because unexpectedly I
have had to make a new install.
btw, would it be too late to request that setup.exe have a manifest made
up, much like install.exe, to defeat Vista's UAC? If you only want to do
a Download, then you don't really need privilege elevation. Actually,
scratch that. It would not do for the other methods, and there would be
a bit of coding work involved to invoke elevation for those specific
actions that require it.
Best regards, and thanks in advance,
