S*E v 168: no need for admin mode under Vista

New version of Star*Explorer, the best 3d party smugmug tool, is now Vista-safe.
New VSPS licensing system is lighter, faster, simpler for the end user and does not require administrator mode to activate.
Existing license holders are safe, though. S*E currently work with both systems, so unless you are experiencing Vista-related issues, there is no need to request a new license.
