does it have anything to do with resolving the issue with antiviruses?

Sorry no. The reason antiviruses are picky as far as I can tell is the tool that packs configuration data into the patcher. Antiviruses are not happy when a program tries to modify other program file(s), which is the typical way for malware to spread.

It still is one of the best out there. Just because you have to give the patcher privilege to run, doesn't downgrade Thor Patcher in any way.

As far as I know, antivirus softwares only complains about the config embed tool, which isn't used by players anyway.

Are antivirus softwares complain about patcher itself?

I'm not sure about relation of this to antivirus problem. Are you saying about the windows UAC thing? That can be removed IF RO is not installed in restricted directories such as "Program Files". However, I do no think enforce players install elsewhere would be an ideal solution.

Well, I have sort of mixing up versions myself lately. Every version after 2.6.1.66 is untested, the latest being 2.6.2.70

One question. Is it possible to restrict users from opening the game directly by using the client? I want them to use the patcher every time.

Edit: Solved.

The ThorPatcher is not changing the Hexed/Client.

It downloads the new, but is not really changing

Make sure you packed update patch with file mode, or use rgz.

Yes, it was found

It was made several tests

In all cases, it downloads, replaces, but does not actually change anything.

It seems that the patcher won't work on WinXP-Systems...

Could you fix that?

I have two friends they use WinXP.

When they start the patcher, they get the error

"An error occured in the application"

All other Players they use WinVista and Win7 can start the patcher without problems.
