In version 3.30 and later, however, this has all changed. DONATION can be run by an Administrator or non-Administrator user, and the User Account Control prompt does not come up. The issues in previous versions of DONATION that required it to be run as an Administrator have mostly been worked around in one way or another, without eliminating any features.
