No

With the current installer it is not possible to install JabRef without admin permissions. This restriction is not needed. I'm the author of your Windows installer script, so hereby I provide a changed script that allows it.

I attached the changed installer script.

    Applied in JabRef 2.9 beta 2. Let's see, how it works out.

  • We shipped the 2.9b2 version using the old setup.nsi file, because there were some errors I couldn't figure out:

    First I got this one:
    !define: "VERSION" already defined!

    After commenting out that line, I got the following:
    !include: could not find: "fileassoc.nsh"

    On Win7, I'm not asked for admin privileges.

    Wow, I got a reply after 5 years. Things have changed a lot in the meantime, but I will have a look at the installer again this weekend.

      I think, the current installer works without admin permissions, doesn't it?
