    1) The icon for the shortcut refers to C:\Windows\Installer\.... - why not have it refer to whereever the new installed program is?

    2) There are multiple builds in "C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\" so why n ot just keep the last one? Is there any way that a privious build can be used?

    Here is my folder listing:
    ==============================================
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command 9.02
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command 10.0
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command 13.04 13.04.63
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command 14.0 14.03.59
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command x64 11.0
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command x64 13.04 13.04.63
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command x64 14.0 14.03.59
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command x64 15.0
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command x64 15.0 15.00.17
    C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Roaming\JP Software\Take Command x64 15.0 15.00.18

    3) Is there a way to have a shortcut ALWAYS open a program with "Run as administrator" ?

    TIA!!!

    In a shortcut's properties ... Shortcut ... Advanced ... you can check "Run as Administrator" but you'll have to answer the UAC prompt every time. There's a trick you can do with the Win7 task scheduler to avoid the UAC prompt. Make a scheduled task (TCCAdmin) ... run on demand ... always use the highest credentials ... then create a shortcut to "schtasks.exe /run /tn TCCAdmin".

    As for all those ancient folders and the ~2mb MSI file in each one, there seems to be little interest in fixing it. I have 87 MB:
