Erase from file context menu doesn't work if Eraser is Run as Administrator

If is set to Run as an Administrator on Vista with UAC, then attempting to Erase a file says it can't start Eraser (even though it's running). Works if Eraser isn't set to Run as an Administrator.

  • Milestone set to Eraser 6.0

This is expected behaviour. This is because when Eraser is already running at a higher privilege level than the new instance (which is spawned to delete the file) the interprocess communications don't work (because of Vista restrictions)

However I can work on it to make sure that the process works more smoothly in future.
