Native SDK install on a Mac requires Admin account?

When I attempt to install the Native SDK from a user account, it Shows the following Error:

 

"You do not have write permissions to the chosen installation destination.  Please choose a different location for installation."

 

Do I have to login as admin to install the SDK, or can I change it to a different directory? If I change the directory will that cause problems during development?

 

Installer version 10.0.9

Installing "bbndk" in the folder "Applications" on the disk...

Stuck it in a local user folder, everything seemed to install correctly. Hopefully something doesn't require admin rights...

That sucks, but really... who develops on a Mac without admin privilages? You should talk to whoever gave it to you and demand access. Thats just cruel.
