USGCB compliance run with admin privileges

Can TOAD be revised to be USGCB compliant and run without the user having admin privileges?

Is it just me, or is everything winding down for the release? Any takers?

Good Afternoon Dell Team,

 USGCB is a US Government wide standard, [http://usgcb.nist.gov/index.html](http://usgcb.nist.gov/index.html) with lots of detail that is not needed for my request.  The heart of my request is that TOAD be able to run on a compliant desktop, and more specifically that the TOAD user not need administrative group membership.  Since my desktop is non-compliant, due to prior releases of TOAD, I do not know that TOAD still requires administrative rights for the TOAD user.  Has this changed? Can USGCB compliance be accomplished in version 12.8?

Toad is fully compliant and has been for some time as far as I know. Admin privileges are only required for installation. For more detailed info you may want to contact support

Good Morning Brad,

 Thank you!  I had not tried to run TOAD without admin privileges for some time; you are correct, no admin required to run after install.

 New thought; can you create a portable version of TOAD that does not require admin privileges to install?  [https://portableapps.com/](https://portableapps.com/)
