Unable to auto update 9.0.3 to 9.0.4

I have been unable to use IDEA's auto-updating to patch 9.0.3 to 9.0.4. I click on "Download Patch and Restart" and it shows that it is downloading the patch, and then closes the application. When it restarts it is still 9.0.3.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a log file somewhere that might tell me what happened?

I am on Win7, 64bit. Java 1.6.0_22

Obviously I can download the full install but it would be so much nicer to simply apply a 2MB patch.

I had the same problem.  It seems IDEA has to be run as Administrator
for the patch process to work.  If you do that then when it restarts the
actual patch process happens.

Absolutely spot-on! Thank you very much. (Still not used to thinking about "run as administrator" under Win7...)
