How does install4j decide where in the registry to store the installation dirs?

I am observing some instdir keys stored in local machine, and some in current user:

HKLMSOFTWAREej-technologiesinstall4jinstallationsinstdir<app.id>
HKCUSOFTWAREej-technologiesinstall4jinstallationsinstdir<app.id>

Is that based on a configuration setting?

Answer

The local machine keys are only writable with elevated privileges. If no “Request privileges” action has been executed, the current user keys are used.
