The installer does the following things that require adminsitrative
Copy files to "Program Files": other path can be chosen
Write to some registry keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE: don't know if used by
other applications but could be done in HKEY_CURRENT_USER when non-admin
or just skipped.
So there is no good reason to require adminstrative privileges altough
extra functionality can be provided.
