This revision should not require admin priviledges to do everything anymore. The program actually requires admin priviledges to write files at C:\Program Files directory and that's all it does with it. So, in order to reduce its dependency, we've proceeded in the following way:

- SHP_Builder.dat is now written at the user AppData folder (I.e.: C:\User\Username\Application Data\Roaming\CnC_Tools\SHP_Builder.dat).
- SHP Builder will restart the program and ask admin priviledges to Install the program, Update it and Uninstall it. Note that Update is still dumb and it won't try to figure out if an update was really released before restarting the program with admin priviledges. It is a temporary solution until I figure out the best way to extract the version of the latest release and how to compare it with the current version.

I really dislike that. That stupid windows philosophy "write stuff everywhere, never delete it, who cares if it lingers there years later" is really annoying.

Can't you make a quick check, if writing is allowed in SHP Builder folder, then use this folder?
And only if there is write protection, use the AppData folder.

Also when copying SHP Builder from one PC to another or when using it on a USB Stick, such AppData usage is plain horrible.
