The Revulytics Usage Intelligence SDK does NOT require administrator privileges on the machine. However if you want to avoid any issues with Windows UAC please follow the recommendation below.
Every time your application is run, the Usage Intelligence SDK accesses/maintains 2 files on disk (i.e. ruiconfig.cfg and ruiconfig.log). More information about these files can be found in this KBase article.
If you are using Usage Intelligence with Microsoft Windows Vista or higher and your application runs from the Program Files directory, you should make sure to set the file path to a location where your application has write permissions when calling
ruiCreateConfig(). This is because on some machine configurations, if the user does not have administrator privileges, your application will be denied access to the Program Files directory.
