That would be worth checking. You can get the old one with:

tlmgr gui-old

In fact, could you also check:

tlmgr gui
tlmgr -version

all from unelevated command prompt. I would like to know what actually
triggers the elevation.

What I meant to ask is whether other vbs scripts require elevation on
your system or only ours (this could be some security setting).

We are in the process of replacing some wrapper scripts, so I might as
well replace tlmgr-gui.vbs with tlmgr-gui.exe but I would like to know
first if it will solve anything.
