Sony Ericsson PC Suite installer quirkyness

Just talked to Sony Ericsson support about the PC Suite that wont start. The reason it fails to start is that it needs to be installed and started on the account where it is going to be used, and that account needs administrator privileges during the installation and first start. This isn’t an installer bug, but by design.

Why not just set everything up when the applications are installed so they just work when they are started regardless if the current user is an administrator or limited user? I can’t think of a single thing that they possibly couldn’t do during the installation using an administrator account and per user settings can be setup just fine in HKCU, or other things that needs to be written to the current users profile. So what is it they need to do the first time the application starts up?
