Failed to Generate Installer error in UpdaterAtor

Issue

When trying to use the "Save for Console" function in UpdaterAtor, you receive a "Failed to Generate Installer" error.

Explanation of Issue & Solution

This occurs when UpdaterAtor does not have the proper admin permissions on the PC to be able to create the EXE for the Save for Console function. To resolve this close UpdaterAtor, right-click the icon, and choose "Run as Administrator." If the account on the PC is a user account, you'll be prompted for the admin username and passcode. After launching as admin you should no longer get the error.
