That perception is probably a hold-over from the Vista days.

Subject: Re: [WDSCI-L] RDi way ahead

Just to clarify, RDi does not 'require' administrator. RDi provides 2 install modes: admin and user (or non-admin). Admin mode was always available and is our current default. User mode became available later and is not as obvious (this is something we hope to improve).

A user mode install means you install a user mode IBM Installation Manager (by running 'userinst' from the product's InstallerImage_xxx folder instead of 'install'). With a user mode Installation Manager installed (it is listed under 'My IBM Installation Manager'), anything installed by it (e.g.
RDi) is user-specific instead of 'all users'.

Note: not all products support user mode.
