Issue with article number (TS102964).

The article is  solution for Error 76567 when you try to install McAfee software using Installer 1 on Windows Vista or Windows 7. The final step before proceeding with the download & installation is download  McUpdFix.zip file. When the "McUpdFix" folder is extracted from the zip the contents of the folder indicates that a batch file should be run as an administrator contrary to the instruction in the article. The batch file is as follows:

____________________________________________________________

@echo off
REM Run this command as administrator to update VTP certificate store

echo Start updating certificates...

cd CertUpdate_2016

McCertUpd.exe /path "%CD%"

if %errorlevel% neq 0 (
echo Failed!
exit /b
)

echo Updating certificates part 2...
cd ..

McCertUpd.exe /path "%CD%"

if %errorlevel% neq 0 (
echo Failed!
exit /b
)

echo Done

___________________________________________________

  As it stands this batch file will fail since the default directory for a batch file run as an administrator is "C:\WINDOWS\system32". To fix this the first command following the line "echo Start updating certificates...", should be cd /d "%~dp0" in order to set the current directory to the location of the batch file. Also note /d parameter is essential for the change directory command to work and the quotes surrounding the drive letter and path %~dp0 accommodate any space found in the path name!

This should be fixed, I wasted a lot of time understanding and finally resolving this issue since I'm not expert in batch file knowledge, others also, might not be able to easily figure it out!
