Start Menu item (etc) missing after non-Admin install

I just installed 6.9.2 with all defaults from the installer, onto Windows 7.
It seemed to install just fine - with no warnings or problems.
(As per the title - I don’t have Admin access to the PC right now)
- The Start Menu items aren’t right. There is a “Notepad++” folder but inside it just says “(empty)”
- The Explorer file-right-click integration isn’t in place.
- Notepad++ does not appear in the 'Add or Remove Programs" screen.
I can run it just fine if I browse to the install location and double-click the .exe.
I know most people installing will have Admin rights, but I expected it to still behave gracefully if not.
Why should a text editor require Admin rights?
Or is something weird going on? (My Windows PC is a fresh corporate SOE build - Nothing very special)

MS decided that certain actions do require administrative privileges.
Some of them can be worked around others not.
