Run Ubi with or without admin privilege

Starting from Ubi 3.2.0, Ubi can run without admin privilege. It can be handy when organization wants to offer Ubi to non-admin users. 

By default Ubi requires admin privilege to run. But you can change it at UbiService->Settings and uncheck "Run As Admin" option.

Here are the pros and cons of running Ubi with and without admin privilege.
