The installer does the following things that require adminsitrative privileges:

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

So there is no good reason to require adminstrative privileges altough extra
functionality can be provided.
