There's actually nothing wrong with the patch.exe files. The problem is that Vista won't let me run any executable whose name =~ m/patch/i without first getting my Administrator password. Vista doesn't care what the file actually does - it just decides that any executable whose name =~ m/patch/i needs admin privileges to run, and that it can't be run from the command line. (This of course means that I can rename patch.exe to, say, othername.exe, and I can then run it fine - but I have to run it as 'othername', not 'patch'.) Despite the fact that this is a great and wondrous innovation on the part of Microsoft (I bet Linux wish they'd thought of it first), I would like to remove this behaviour. Anyone know how to do that ?
