    Windows 10 Installation -> You do not have permission to install to: ...

    When I start the Epic Games Launcher as normal user and try to install UT ( after using the administrator password ) I get the error:
    You do not have permission to install to:
    C:/Program Files/Epic Games/UnrealTournamentDev
    6
    I need to run the launcher as administrator to be allowed to install UT.
    But it should be good enough to tell the UT installer the admin password like it works with e.g. the Unreal Engine.

    Edit:
    Another problem beside the security issue is, that if I switch to the Unreal Engine tab the "My Projects" area is empty when I launch the Launcher as admin. So I can't access my projects from inside the Epic Games Launcher while downloading UT.

    Having similar issues, also Windows 10...
    UAC pops up, asking for admin passwords, entering it correct, failed to install anyway...

    Just to let you know: The error still happens in the current version. I still need to run the launcher as administrator to be allowed to install UT.

    I am using a 64-bit Windows 10 as Standart user, not an Administrator.
