[PD] Pd on Windows without administration rights

The spaces don't really matter for Pd. For most people Pd sits in 
"c:\program files (x86)\Pd".
They do matter accessing media/text files from patches though.

Any installation of Pd on Windows will access the registry. I don't know 
how that works on computers with limited rights.
Even on Windows 8, it can get a little tricky with the lowest safety 
level, unless you go and change some stuff in the registry : 
set to 0. With this tweak you have full admin rights.
