MySQL running on Server 2008

After installing MySQL 5 on Windows Server 2008, I kept running into an issue trying to run the MySQLInstanceConfig.exe (screenshot below).  After checking the event viewer, I found an error of:

MySQLInstanceConfig.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "…MySQLInstanceConfig.exe" on line 6. The value "asAdministrator" of attribute "level" in element "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1^requestedPrivileges" is invalid.

A quick google came up with a workaround and a fix which involves an oldie but still goodie, ResourceHacker.  This should be the same for Vista too.
