You need to "Run as Administrator" the installer by right clicking on fedora-arm-installer.exe or it starts windows Diskpart under the installer for some reason and doesn"t show any disks.
That is under Windows 7!
Good point. Whether this is required or not seems to depend on the system policy, it"s not needed on the lab machines we used for most of the testing here. Added a note to the wiki.
Yes that"ll depend on whether the lab guys turned off the UAC because it was annoying them!
To test for UAC elevation on vista and up you do.. whats described in the following : http://social.msdn.microsoft.c.....602ec561c/
If it fails the test you can use GetModuleFilename then get it to relaunch itself using ShellExecute with the "runas" verb – which"ll pop up the UAC prompt.
I"m in the midst of writing a very similar downloader/updater for a product at work right now myself and have done all this in the last few days.
btw can"t help setting up the card, even though my RPi"s ETA is six weeks off… liking how simple this is, but can i suggest one more bit of info about the target device is given – windows drive letter – just in case things go awry and someone is presented with something they don"t expect or have multiple card readers and can't tell them apart. windows users will only know by drive letter and not physical device id (it'll be findable via the setupdi* api's)
edit: just worked seemlessly on my win7 x64 vaio
