Re: KiCad Winbuilder 2.0 fixes bzr patch issue


There is now KiCad-Winbuilder V2.1 up.

There was an issue with windows not allowing any program matching the
simple search pattern *patch*.exe without admin privileges. This is now
fixed in V2.1, so if you were have been having build issues with V2.1 on
Windows Vista, 7 or 8 - please upgrade to the latest version.

V2.0 will work for some people who have disabled some of the UAC facilities.

Thanks to Kerusey Karyu for the great bug report!

So please, if you have any issues - please report it as a bug on the
KiCad-Winbuilder launchpad page:

Best Regards, Brian.
