I had just problems running startx, which failed with a forking error,
and I found the thread about the need to run programs with 'instal'
in their name under 'elevated' rights:
...and I wonder what is the status of all this.
Now, my startx suddenly succeeded twice in a row.
I re-ran setup.exe as Administrator, and got the same dialog as
twice before already:
This program might not have been installed correctly
offering to 'reinstall using recommended settings'...
I could find no mention of this in the FAQ.
I have not deactivated the UAC, should I?
