Given that the pager contains the updater and yet doesn't open with admin privileges, there are usually two options for users of Windows Vista and 7 when it comes to updating BYOND:
a) Use the installer
b) Open the pager as admin, requiring UAC prompt if applicable
Since the former requires users to manually download the installer .exe and therefore bypass the updater anyway and the latter requiring closing and reopening the pager if an update is available, I suggest moving the updater to an external process. This would allow users to easily update, with a UAC prompt only showing for the updater itself, should an update be available.
