Non-admin install

Recommended Posts

It would be really great if you could change this to allow installation without administrator privileges.

I have .Net installed already, so it seems you should be able to fail to installing any DLLs you need locally. What are you doing that needs admin rights?

You can always install on to a system where you do have admin rights, and then copy the C:/Program Files/Paint.NET directory to a ZIP file, USB stick, etc. and just use that directly. You'll miss out on shell integration (thumbnails for PDN files), some performance, and maybe Print/Scan functionality if you're in XP (it has to register a COM DLL for this), but other than that it should work just fine.
