Tor expert bundle requires "Run as Administrator" to install on Win 7 (and Win 8?)
As the subject line states, Tor cannot install into C:\PROG FILES (x86)\ without running it as admin. Is this a bug? It sure bugs me! ;)
This has been an ongoing issue for some time, however, up until I tried to install v0.2.4.10-alpha-win32-1 all the alphas would install w/o running as admin, they just wouldn't start if installed into /PROG FILES/, as I use TBB Vadlia instance to run the alpha Tor, not the stable Tor found in Windows TBB.
Previous Tor alphas installed on my Win 7 PC had to be installed into dirs other than \PROG FILES, e.g., \APPDATA\ or \MY DOCS, otherwise, if they were installed into \PROG FILES\ the Tor wouldn't start when Vidalia tried to start the Tor.
I have attached a screenshot of the error message
