Hello, sorry for bothering the devs with something not really related to the game, but could you please make it so the Windows UrTUpdater doesn't ask for admin rights ?

I don't understand why it does, considering that its only function is to download the game's files and copy them in its folder. There is no registry key to add, no files to put in C:SomeAdminOnlyShit, just some game assets and .exes to put in the same folder as UrTUpdater.exe.

The reason I'm asking this is that I'd like to use the updater on computers where I don't *have* an admin account. It's so much more convenient to update it like that, instead of downloading the whole .zip again at each release.

Another reason is that I just don't like programs running as admin for no reason. It makes me less comfortable running the game, especially considering that the updated is connected to the Internet.

Finally, I'm pretty sure that this is the reason why some antiviruses detect it, which worried me a bit.

All in all, it shouldn't be much work since the admin rights are useless here anyway. It's good practice to not have more privilèges than necessary.
