[Icecast] Icecast install under Windows

Ok.  I installed icecast win_32 2.4.1 with no problem.  The problems arrive when I try changing things...

Why are the folders for icecast write protected?  I made changes to the icecast.xml file & tried saving it, but got errors saying the file is read only!

Then, I scanned the sub-folders in the download folder & found another icecast.xml file!  I couldn't make changes that either!

I found a sleezy work-a-round:  save the file as a different name in a different folder then copy it to the icecast folder, then delete the original file & rename the modified file to icecast.xml.

Next:  When looking at the icecast.xml, what does the IP address do?  The default is http://127.0.0.1.  Do I change this to match the IP address of the machine that is providing the stream source?

Thanks in advance for any help!!

Thanks for pointing that out! (My Windows XP has no UAC so I did not
noticed this)
