I think we need a document about compatibility with Windows Vista on Wiki.
Brian, can you write the compatibility information?
I'll translate it into Japanese.

OK, I'll write something about 0.22.5 and Vista.
Brian: wrt. Popfile, installers and Vista "problems" have you seen this Ms TechNet article:
Script Elevation PowerToys for Windows Vista
Even if not directly relevant its interesting reading.

Thanks for the link, Alec. I'd not seen that article before.
There has also been a lot of discussion about this problem in the NSIS support forum. After some experimentation I have managed to use one of the suggested solutions to make an installer that lets a standard account user install POPFile in the same way as it installs on older versions of Windows.
But I still need to sort out how the installer handles the registry etc. During my research I came across a utility that might help show me what needs to get modified. All I need to do is find that utility - my development files are currently split over two machines and the files I want always seem to be on the other machine ;)

I've created a new page in the wiki at http://popfile.sourceforge.net/wiki/howtos:vistacompatibility and added some links to it.
I have also started modifying the installer to make it work properly when it is used from a standard account in Vista.
This new installer should be ready by the weekend.
