Good info, thanks for that. My client didn't want an installer (they 
used to use one but for this app they wanted a plain zip file.) It's 
useful to know that the dll isn't signed though, for future reference.

We did ask one affected person to move the app folder to their Documents 
folder and all was well. This person was using a university-issued 
computer that likely enforced some stricter permissions. Putting the app 
on the Desktop failed, putting it in Documents was okay.

Don't ask me, I just work here.
