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.

Kind regards,
Rick Blok

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?
