I just made a fresh install into c:\zz, accepting all the defaults in setup.exe, so it installed for everyone.  I got the same result as my preexisting install.

Perhaps this is helpful:

$ id
uid=1000(Warren) gid=513(None) groups=513(None),559(Performance Log Users),545(Users)

Apparently I am a member of both None and Users, whatever that means.

I did these tests on a Windows 10 technical preview VM with UAC left in its default setting.  I did get the blue and yellow UAC dimmed desktop dialog when running setup.exe, so I assume it managed to elevate itself.
