On tex.stackexchange a user reported an installation problem with the 64-bit miktex.
1. had admin rights
2. but the account seems not to be the administrator account
3. choose a folder outside program files for installation. The folder is probably owned by the account.
4. choose shared setup.
The installation failed: initexmf couldn't create the links and reported e.g. "initexmf: warning: The luatex executable could not be found.". The installation works smoothly when the administrator account installed miktex (in an unknown location). I suspect that 2. or 3. is the problem and makes a shared setup impossible. If yes: shouldn't miktex be able to catch the problem and force a single user installation?
