How does this interact with Vista UAC? Will we need to tweak permissions on
the Program Files directory, or does the updater run as a privileged user?

Hi All,

I've been working on a software auto-updating system for the
programs. I've uploaded a 'test' version of the updater to nox
( This will update FM to version 8.10f. It's
primarily accumulated fixes, but does also add a new 'special effects
style' palette. This updated version of FM will also poll periodically to
see if there are any new updates, and if there are any, automatically
download and install them (if you want it to).

If you do test it, let me know how it goes or if you encounter any
problems. If this system works well, it'll be added into the other
programs as well.
