Updating standalone without admin rights

A slight incongruity: On Windows 7, the automatic update checker of Zotero Standalone doesn't check whether I have permissions to install updates, and generates a UAC dialog if I unthinkingly click through, only to then fail to update.

Going to Help > Check for updates does produce a nice explanation "Unable to update ... you do not have permission" etc. So these two update processes are not talking to each other.

More in general, it would be great if Z didn't require admin rights to update, but I guess that's hard to arrange?
  • ...or at least somehow did this more elegantly, e.g. prompt for admin login when trying to update.
    What _is_ the easiest/recommended way of updating Standalone on Windows, by the way? I always find it a bit weird.
