Silent install fails for a non administrator user

Hi,

When I perform a silent install, if the user isn't an "administrator", the installation will fail.
Is there any command that I can append to the silent install command line to force the installation?
Maybe appending an administrator information to that command line, what I don't know how to do.

Thanks.

When needed, the ClamWin installer will install some system files into the appropriate system folders. You need certain privileges to do this (that's why non-administrators may not be able to install, depending on their rights).

There's no option to do a silent install passing the administrator name/password.

you can install as non-admin user (there is a selection, choice to install only for a user). However this option is not available in the silent install - "install for All users" is automatically selected. The only way to get it working is to modify setup.iss file and rebuild the setup using Inno Setup compiler.
