Summary0026067: windows installer problem
DescriptionTwo problems :
-When Lazarus is installed from a user without administrator privilege.
When the installer tries to write a qt file in the directory windows/system32 the installation fails. It should ask the administrator password to be able to write the files in this directory.

*Edit: this part of the report is being tracked separately at issue 9950*
-If the location of the installed directory is changed from the default "\lazarus" to "\Program files\lazarus" the installation fails. It seems it has a problem to handle the space between Program and files.

Edit: installer warns you about folders with spaces which is expected behaviour: not all of the (ancient) binutils bundled with FPC/Lazarus do not support paths with spaces.

I wonder, that there is no problem installing to C:\lazarus without admin priv, at least the report only says C:\windows for qt dll.

Currently unable to test this myself.

Also: Changing this will mean the installer will *always* ask, even if not needed. (see inno setup docs )
Which apparently (if I read the doc correct) on earlier versions of windows will be a real pain, as users must logout, and login as admin. Users that do not have the admin access to a pc will then be unable to install?

Depending on if and when I find a way to test and confirm all this, and depending on the outcome of this, the current situation may be preferable.

Suggest splitting up this report as it concerns 2 separate issues. Suggest tracking space in path issue in 9950. Editing report summary for clarity.

current versions of inno setup ask for admin rights. so this should be resolved.

If the issue persists, please re-open
