Running SR_Runtime without admin

When I launch SR_Runtime from an admin user account, the UAC popup appears, and it lauches and runs with elevated permissions without any problem. Similarly, if I'm logged in as a normal user and run SR_Runtime as an administrator, everything seems to work fine. However, if I run it as a normal user by just double clicking the shortcut/executable normally, there is no UAC popup, and no outward sign that anything has gone wrong (the tray icon even has the orange eyes), but any attempt to initialise the eye tracking seems to return INITIAL_FAILED.

Is there any way to launch the runtime without requiring admin privileges?

SR_Runtime needs admin privilege to do certain system configurations.

Thanks for confirming that.
Should it not prompt for admin privileges when running as a normal user then? At the moment, it just silently fails.
