The patch also gets tricked by Vista's UAC feature. Updates need to be done under an Admin account so, when the game gets ready to install, it prompts for admin password. No prob. But then, after it finishes, it tries to launch the game. Not a good plan. When you grant admin privs under Vista UAC it makes the program run under the administrator account. So, when the game starts, it starts under the admin account, which means it suddenly doesn't know any of the settings.
