Hi Siep, I've got the screen dump from the user (attached, I've removed his name)
He is on
Win 10 home version 1511.
I've asked him to test making a folder in c:\ and describe what happens.
Maybe it should catch the error better and give the user an error message, I think a lot of normal users get scared by a back trace like that.

No. As I wrote earlier, a normal user should be able to create
c:\texlive without a UAC prompt. As I wrote before, sometimes
Windows appears to need time to realize what it has done.
But before adding a delay, I would like some confirmation that that
was the problem, and not something else.
