Right-clicking and install as admin - do you actually do this?

OK, once again, I am bringing a discussion from another forum here to get some unfiltered feed back. Yes, this is from the SketchUp forum, again, so almost any time someone posts an issues with SU not working well a select few will ALWAYS respond that the user should right-click and install with admin rights. I mention once that I've NEVER had to do this with ANY software since moving to Windows 7. I mean ANY software Windows 7 Home/Pro to Windows 10 Home/Pro. I have no issues with SU, Acad, Revit, Max, Form-Z, Simlab, Unity, Blender, etc...and have NEVER installed this way. One user said that I was just "lucky". Perhaps so but I thought I'd ask here. Anyone else....just lucky? ;)

As long as I'm logged in using an account with local admin access, it works fine with normal execution.

What I thought as well RK, thanks. I can't remember when I haven't had full admin rights on a box.

Yeah, I've never done a right click install either, and I have installed tons of programs over the years, on many different computers, on many different OS's. Just lucky I guess. :thumbsup:

I have 2 in particular that you were forced to  have full admin rights to complete the install.  Both were bugs and were fixed eventually.  That has been a long time ago ( XP / VISTA  )

 

Both were specific to my industry.   But what a pain it was !

1200 computers on the network so in some cases because of security have to get IT install and worse some software writes temporary files to directories that IT lock. They have to add to a permission install list. 

 

Autocad and a couple of others were impacted, some just install.
