installing .EXE to %programfiles% on vista?

Discussion in 'Open Forum' started by CSGalloway@nc.rr.com, Jan 22, 2011.

  1. I am helping someone to cleanup their vista computer and wondered how to install a standalone - non-installable .EXE to the %programfiles% folder please.

    An example is basically how to put CCEnhancer.exe to %ProgramFiles%\CCEnhancer\CCEnhancer.exe .

    You mean other than just manually copying it there?

    If you want to do this with a batch file, the batch file must be executed with the "run as Administrator" privilege (assuming UAC is enabled). Otherwise you'll get an "access denied."
     
  3. I can do a BAT file but was looking for a simplier way....
