While trying to install a package. I had Error 8 (something related to Read/Write file). I spent some time trying or figure what was the problem. I finaly tried run as admin and it worked.

i do not want vipm to run as admin. i would have to justify this to information security and that could give people reason to NOT use VIPM.
i have a use case for this. i am writing packages that edit registry settings to apply user preferences (e.g. windows settings, SVN preferences, etc). since VIPM is so easy to use, i would rather use it than a standard batch file because i can place multiple packages into a VIPC.
one thing to note is that a VI package is installed for all users. if you edit registry settings for the current user with a package, it will only be applied for that user even though the package will appear to have been installed for all users.
