When my software performs the update as a regular user, the permissions get skewed. Everything becomes accessible by the administrator only. The service is running, which I thought would take care of that. Ideas?

Which OS are you running? I have just tried on windows Vista Business as regular user and update worked without any issue.
Did you perhaps try with our sample. What happened?
Let us know how it goes.

The machine I'm testing on is running Windows XP Pro. I tried your sample it works as long as the files aren't deposited in the windowssystem32 directory. If I left it in a directory that was writeable/readable to everyone it works ok. Putting it in the system32 directory and it didn't work.

I have just try it and it works for me if I use for update windows System 32 folder. I have tested on Windows XP SP2 with regular user.

If problem persist with latest version. Is there any chance that you can send us some sample that will duplicate your problem? You can send your private information to email@example.com

I tried with your sample and got the same result. When it tries to update the updemo.dll, it errors out and says it can't delete the file. If I rerun it as administrator, it runs fine. The service is running, but unless I have admin priveledges, it won't let me access any file in the system32 folder. Yes I am running the latest version

Can you please send us some example to firstname.lastname@example.org I'm unable in duplicating your issue. It works for me.
Maybe you have some firewall? What is value of ServiceIsRunning Property when you request update as regular user?

I thought maybe it was another service causing it since none of the files are being updated except in the app directory, so I manually killed it. It was included in the cmd before to net stop the service, but it wasn't actually stopping it.
Even with that service stopped, it still wasn't updating the files in the system directory. I sent you a sample. If you see something I'm doing wrong, let me know. I can even setup the test machine so you can vnc to it and see what I'm saying.
