You mean you have to right-click and then choose "Run as administrator" to get it to install properly? That's not needed here. I guess this depends on where you install it. I install in a subdir (called "Portable (x86)", where I keep all my portable apps) on my desktop, works fine, no hassle.

To not loose your settings when you install, just save reaper.ini prior to install and then copy it over the freshly installed one. I open reaper.ini in a text editor (TextPad) before installing, and then I just save it back from the editor with a quick Ctrl+S.
I never always did the right thing, but all I did wasn't wrong...
