What permissions need to be given to a user to install or update RStudio without giving local admin permission?

My workplace restricts users' abilities to install software. However, our IT dept said they are willing to give me permission to install and update RStudio specifically. They just don't want me to have local admin permissions for everything. They tried giving me permissions specific to RStudio today, but it wasn't sufficient to complete the latest installation using my account. They ended up having to sign in with an admin account to complete the installation.

We thought that since RStudio is open source there might be a list of required permissions available somewhere. If we can get ahold of that, I'll be able to control my own RStudio installation. I don't know if this resource exists, or where to start looking for it. Does anyone have any advice?

My OS is Windows 10 Pro. Many thanks.
