This should not be. We have had a verification of writeable.
May be I must show...

May be, but I am not confident. We have a program change (fork?)
from the launcher to java.exe with the installation. I assume
that MS do not give the special process token to the child

I will look if I have a system and test all possiblities (if 
I have time). But this will be not before January (hollidays...).
