DirectConnect (dc++) connection problem on Windows 7

DirectConnect (dc++) connection problem on Windows 7

I'm setting up a Direct Connect hub for our LAN party to distribute game patches etc. Have been doing that for years with few problems. I've now upgraded to Windows 7 (RC) and no one can connect to me. I can connect to the local hub (running port 411)

This is caused when you dont run your DC++ app as administrator , i know for a fact that this what happened to me. If you dont run as admin 2 things will happen. People will generally not be able to connect to you without you granting them a slot and any files you hash will not be saved. So the next time you start your app it will start reshashing all the files again.
