[protege-discussion] why does Protege require admin privileges?

Why does an install of Protege 4.1 on Windows/x64 always ask me for:

"Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher
to make changes to this computer?"

I don't really want to, no.

I've tried changing the permission of the C:\Program Files\Protege_4.1
folder so that my user has write access - in case this is needed for
writing to plugins/ or similar.

I installed from
the "without Java VM" for Windows x64.

However you should not really offer this "without VM" option here
until you've fixed the distribution to work with Java 7 - I had to
also update the felix.jar as proposed on
