The removal of JAVA support led me to installing the NXT client on a desktop vs my notebook. As I use the notebook for banking and other financial tasks I've only installed apps like MS Office which require administrative access to install - MS already controls the OS so no significant increased risk there.

With my membership ending soon, decreased play time as I need to be at my desktop, and my family not so happy by my increased isolation, I'm not for sure if I should continue the membership if I can't get NXT installed on my notebook without admin access.

Does anyone know how to install the NXT client without admin access?

Thanks!

Install it on another computer, take the file at C:\Program Files\Jagex\ called runescape.exe (it might be in some other folders in there), put it on a USB and run it from there.

The worst case scenario is the sound might not work because sometimes the installer adds some files to enable sound support, but you either might not care or might have those files anyway.

HMM your solution worked!!!!! Your concern over the sound was correct but I normally play without sound. Hopefully Jagex will create a FAQ using your technique. When I contacted support they had no solution. Thanks HMM!!!!!
