> my remark concerning the admin rights is quite important: I know a lot of users (students, co-workers,...) who installed VLC in a "user directory" on Windows XP (thus not needing access to C:\Program Files) as up to now it was working without problems (it's even the case for me!). Additionally as VLC is really "self-contained" it is the "miracle" application for multi-media. If we remove the "userland" installation, we'll loose a lot of users (OK, at least it's my opinion :->). Admin rights (on XP, don't ask me for Vista or Windows7: I never used them) were not needed up to now, why change this?

You have a point here, please provide a patch for this.
