#311 closed defect (fixed)

check for UAC on windows install

If UAC is deactivated on windows (vista/7) installation, the installer shows a error aka "fixperms not done".
A check for active UAC could prevent that error.

I suspect that this wasn't a UAC bug but a problem with non-English versions of Windows. If I am correct, the error looked something like the screenshot at and was fixed by me in revision dac919a0fd719c75c13b40460f2cb0bc5ff620c7.

The installation works perfectly fine, both with UAC enabled and with it disabled in both Vista and Win7.

Fixed in 0.8.8-1.
