Executing setups from virtual CD with Virtual CD TS as of Windows 2012

Using Virtual CD TS on Windows 2012 or higher may cause problems when trying to execute a setup.

After executing a setup from virtual CD you cannot run it any further as the setup cannot be found anymore.

This problem pertains to so-called session relative drives, such as virtual drives from Virtual CD TS, but also mapped drives (the latter may be connected during the setup within the correct user context).

Setups are flagged as administrative program, i.e. the file is executed automatically "as Administrator". In this case the setup has no access to session relative drives as they are available only in the normal user context.
