Continue installation when not started as administrator

The installer prompts for all necessary information, only to stop because of missing admin rights.

This has made me cancel the installation and re-run it with admin rights more than once. I was afraid that [Ignore All] would try to install without admin rights and cause some problems down the road.

I tried [Ignore All] today and was prompted for admin credentials, so the installation was actually fine.

I still find that strategy confusing. Why show that warning and not just have the [Install] button with the admin icon enabled like most other installers?

I agree, that's not very smooth.

I'll make sure that the installer team sees this.

Thank you .

It would be nice if Toad had a user-mode installer like Visual Studio Code does.


Looks like this has been done for 16.0, thank you!
