    The 3rd or 4th time I ran MP Configuration under Win 7 Pro, Windows strongly suggested that I run it henceforth in Vista compatibility mode. It is "Run as Administrator".
    Does anyone know why?
    Is there any reason not to?

    I am posting this here instead of the Development forum, because I don't consider this a bug.
