NetScanTools Pro and User Privileges

Yesterday an astute user pointed out that if you start NetScanTools Pro 10.98 on Windows 7 in a USER privileges account, the operating system asks that you login with an administrator account password to allow the program to run.

NOT GOOD! You should at least be able to run the program from that type of account without jumping through hoops. So I quickly traced the issue to the MANIFEST. You programmers out there know about this. In it were commands asking for higher privileges than we really need, so I think we are going to have a new minor, minor revision on Thursday. Beside fixing that little problem, the databases will all be updated with current information.

I assume this would affect anyone still using Windows Vista as well as Windows 7. The rest of you have little to concern yourselves with regarding this problem.
