Livery Manager crashes while trying to install liveries

This issue can occur on Windows Vista or Windows 7 when FSX is installed in the Program Files or Program Files (x86) folder.

Windows will sometimes not give the livery manager the necessary permissions to write files to the FSX folder - this causes the crash.

The solution is to run the Livery Manager with the "Run as adminstrator" command.  You can do this each time you run it by right clicking the livery manager icon and choosing it from the menu, or you can set it to run this way permanently by right clicking the Livery Manager icon, choosing "Properties", then the "Compatibility" tab, then placing a check mark in the bottom box that says "Run this program as an adminstrator."
