Perhaps someone would like to tell me how I can remedy these problems. More importantly, this should be in an FAQ or some such. Also, I would like to know if we have really tested out on Vista the privilege surrendering code that is is supposed to work in Windows. It looks to me like it might not be working.

What makes you say that?

It was just a suspicion, but maybe the fact that the admin user can't run while the non-admin user can indicates that it is working (possibly too well).

If we can make progress on these issues then I'll be happy. If not, I think we need to look carefully at what we say we can support, and what we declare to be still experimental.

Lack of completely reliable buildfarm support for MSVC or trouble setting up a buildenv doesn't mean we cannot support a platform - it just means we need o be extra vigilent to ensure that regresssion tests etc. do actually pass (though that level of failure would be visible on the BF I would hope - it certainly has been until now).

I am not only concerned about the buildfarm, but about the robustness, maintainability and simplicity of the build process. Having to have a completely separate build system for msvc is really quite sucky.
