Admin to Standard ?

I'm trying to install a program that requires that I be logged into my Administrator account, it won't prompt for a Admin password. Can I install a program that requires Admin under Standard account, a way to bypass the requirement ?

Try right clicking on the programs's installer and select Run as Administrator, see if that helps.

That doesn't work, it must be under an Administrator Account, this is what I hope I can override.

No way that I know of, sorry.

Why do you need to do this from a non-admin account? Maybe there is something else or some other way to do it.

I got it working, I had to adjust one of the settings for the program.
