Swat3 installed into "Program Files (x86)" - February 1, 2015

I am thinking of releasing a new version of the Last Resort mod but I need to solve a problem when people install Swat 3 into the Program Files (x86) folder.  What is happening is that Windows doesn't like the fact that I am reading and writing to files in the Swat 3 folder which happens to be in the Program Files (x86) folder.  Windows does this to protect the OS but is a pain in the ass.

With Windows 8 this can be fixed by making the Last Resort Launcher run in Windows 7 compatibility mode.   What is strange on my Windows 8.1 laptop is that if I place it in Windows 8 compatibility mode it also works fine.  Go figure.

The moral of the story is don't install Swat 3 to the Program Files (x86) folder if you want to use the Last Resort Mod.   It is better to store it in a custom folder like Games\Swat3 so you don't have strange problems like this.
