Hello,

I would like to install SkyDemon on my work computer, where I generally don't have administrator rights. However SkyDemon for whatever reason requires the user to be an administrator (for installation). Is there a way to overcome this restriction?

It's not for me to police your employer's InfoSec policies, but wouldn't a chat with your lT team resolve this?

I don't need it for work purposes, so they won't bother making an exception for this.

Our installer doesn't have that option. However, you can just copy the program files to anywhere you like, "installing" the software that way. SkyDemon should still run fine.
