I've noticed the warning in the installer, but I've installed 2.0.3 in the same way and I haven't noticed any problems. MikTeX is the portable version and sits in a directory were I've got write access. Lyx is using it (got multiple versions on the computer) since the right folder is in lyxrc.dist, preferences dialog and in tex information, and I've got no latex in my path. I can't see any new files in MikTeX's bin folder.
I will try later on a computer were I've got admin privileges.

The installer in general still requires admin privileges. The problem is in one hand Imagemagick and on the other hand MiKTeX. For MiKTeX I did not yet find time to check the case that MiKTeX was installed as admin, but LyX not. Then it is impossible to enable splitindex and some other features because files like a Perl interpreter need to be added to MiKTeX's bin folder. If it was installed as admin, LyX installed as user can't write in this directory. So does it work if you install the test release with admin privileges? regards Uwe
