Next, I tried installing RC1 using my non-admin account, but the 
installation failed when trying to write to "C:\Program 
Files\POV-Ray\v3.7\agpl-3.0.txt". After switching to my admin account, 
the installation completed successfully, but did not copy the Start Menu 
items and assorted include files to my non-admin accounts. Is there no 
way to install POV-Ray for all users?
