Eh?  I just installed on Vista yesterday and all I had to do was click
on setup.exe.  Vista asked to run it as administrator since the
executable is named setup.exe.   I didn't have to do anything special.

BTW this is not X-specific so you should probably ask on the main list
unless you have X related issues.
