I checked and the specified file does not exist. But I guess the installer should create it.

We may need to release note that the user who install load-balancer Configurator need to have full system installation right. "Administrator" usually should have the right to create directory in the restricted path.

Instructions added to HA Admin Guide.

Information was added to HA Admin Guide, but as this was not a doc issue, I should not have closed it.

Windows 2008 is useful to support.

Fix already documented and it is well known that most installations on Windows require Admin privileges.
