and weird stuff it put in my Windows startup list without asking.

What was it? I've not installed it yet. Was it via the steam version, or a download directly from them?

Oh, nothing really especially shady, and certainly not nefarious. It was probably the result of a bug with the installation process (version downloaded from their site) but, my startup list has an entry called:


from "Unknown" manufacturer, pointing to my 'Downloads' folder, to execute: "MinerWars_TEST_01_088_000_Setup.exe /cmdloc "HKCU\Software\Keen Software House AiTemp\{a8959312-9179-420b-a900-1fd74ad5f68d}""

Which I had deleted after running the setup program. Definitely didn't make me happy when I first saw it though, making me satisfy myself it wasn't itself, or the result of, something nasty. I imagine it has something to do with their do-it-yourself, not-DRM, DRM.

edit: Oh, and obviously, to be fair, that was from the beta installation (though only about a week or so before the final was released).
