I always install Rational products in C:\IBM. I install the shared pieces in C:\IBM\Shared and then use a product and version specific folder for the other bits (WDSC7, RDP76, RBD80, etc.). I prefer the shorter paths, but it turns out to be very beneficial in Windows 7.

Which windows? XP, 7?

If it's Windows 7, is RDP installed in the default location (c:/program files (x86)/...)?

There's a warning that's displayed when you install RDP on Windows 7 about installing it in 'virtualized directories' (like Program files). If it's installed there, you can't run RDP unless it's run as administrator.

The solution is to install it in another directory.

I installed it in "c:/IBM Rational" and it works fine without admin capabilities.
