VSTO 2010 Install Issue with no local Admin

I need to "install" an word addin and a word template project onto a machine that I do not have local admin on.  Is it possible to do so?  Can I have an admin add some prerequisites and then deposit the DLL(s) and/or EXE(s) manually?

The recommended installation method for VSTO solutions is Click Once. Click Once can install your solution, along with prerequisites, without admin rights.

I did not see that as the case.  I remoted into a box without local admin and the setup needed to install some prerequisites such as VSTO runtime and it failed to do so.

Also, there are potentially registry  updates that the setup may make that also require some elevated rights.
what registry values require elevated rights?
I can tell you that the VSTO 2010 would not install on the machine I attempted to run the install.  I did not have rights to do the install whereas a local admin ran the setup.  I would think that the registry will also be secured.  

I do not have a particular registry entry in mind which is why in my comment I used the word "may".
