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 http://bioman.blanc.free.fr/bugs/i2p/i2p.jpg 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.
