update without administrator rights

scrivener windows 1.0.1 - vista

I installed scrivener 1.0.1 using the administrator account (it is the office PC); everything is fine. Now I tried to update from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2 thru the “check for updates” menu, downloaded the file and pushed the “install Update” button. But the installation routine says it cant write in C:Programme, where Scrivener is installed, no rights. This makes sens, the installation routine is running with the user- and not with the administration account.

So, how to start the update with the administrator account? It would help if the update-installation routine within scrivener would ask me if I like to run the downloaded exe as administrator.

I’ll see if there’s any way Lee can add a prompt for that. In the meantime, just run Scrivener as administrator and then run the check for updates; after you’ve upgraded you can close and relaunch as a standard user.
