Yup. Forgot to mention that. But then that's only right else the whole
idea of an Admin doing Admin stuff would be rendered mute. :)

There is some code around that can achieve this. But I'm dead against using
it or even distributing it. For most of us here it should be a good enough
way via admin and Update.exe and anybody not being the admin probably
shouldn't be trying to get it to run. What I might look for is something to
convert to Rev so that the program can check if the admin is logged on
before trying to execute an update.

It is that. However in time we'll all get used to it.
