It's impossible to install application with non-administrator account

When installing on Windows XP or Vista you need to login as a local administrator to complete the installation. Otherwise this could result in permission errors or no response from the installer.

Elevating the privileges from a non-administrator account will not allow you to complete the installation. Switching to the appropriate type of user will address this situation.

Once the software has been installed with an administrator account it is possible to run it with a limited user.
