Does Bamboo remote agent Windows service have to run as an administrator?

Is it a Bamboo requirement to run the remote agent Windows Service as an administrator?  We'd like to avoid running as an admin in our deployment environments if possible.

As far as I know, there is no such requirement.

It's not required, but you will have to create a custom image to get it running as another user.

It's probably something that's going to change to be in line with Linux images where the agent doesn't run as root.
