    Only way around that would be to actually go on the administrator's account, as I don't know any installer that doesn't lead to that one.

    why don't ask the admin to install it then if you don't have admin rights? asking people to upload 1gb of data butchered out of official version every time you need to update is not a good idea

    if you cant get the admin to install it then sounds you are doing something that you shouldn't

    Particularly since it's against the EULA. Downloading Unity from a non-official source is somewhat unwise anyway...you don't know for sure what's actually there. And yeah, the correct solution is to have admin rights. If you don't have those, then talk to the person who does.

    No. Only the owner of the computer can do that. That's the only and final answer, so I'm locking this topic now.
