In Win XP I used a simple batch file to copy GhostScript dll to Windows\System32 with a batch file from the Installation CD.  With Vista that all seems to be prevented and requires permissions to run.  I have no preference of batch, VBS or Net except I am vauge with all.  I would like the could that would work like the old XP copy the files, a Vista message to OK would be acceptable.
copy gsdll32.dll %windir%\system32\

Do these files positively have to be in the Vista System32 folder?

No the file does not and suppose that is the answer.  I have worked around the issue by placing the file in a the program files area with a VISTA acknowledgement.  Another month of VISTA and I wil have it figured out.  Thanks
