yeah, I did this the other day, Right-Click the Patch file and choose
"Run as Administrator", and it'll install.
If you want to get around these problems in the future, when the game
asks "Where do you want to install this game", install the game somewhere
OTHER than your Program Files folder (like C:\Games\)
Folders outside Program Files are unsecure and can be updated without
requireing Security Elevation.
