Hi,

I personally think that by default the Windows CorsixTH installer should install it in a non write protected directory instead of program files so that:
* It can be installed without an admin password needing to be entered.
* It can be updated without the admin password needing to be entered.
* It can have fully automated updates: the current auto update system will download setup wizards for new versions when it finds out they've been released but it will then require players to manually run these wizards and to enter their admin password if they've installed this game in their program files directory.

I also think the installer should tell players about the benefits of not choosing to install this game in their program files directory.
