Is it possible to create an addin that doesn't require a user to have admin rights to install?

I've created an addin using Visual Stuido 2008 and it works great locally.

I've created an installer which installs locally fine, because I have admin rights to the computer I'm using.

When trying the installer on another computer (that I do not have admin rights to) I get a dialog box that says: "Could not register type library for file [install dir]\swcommands.tlb"

Exit Installation / Try Again / Continue

If I select Continue I get that same thing: "Could not register type library for file [install dir]\sldworks.tlb" \ "Could not register type library for file [install dir]\swconst.tlb"

 

Is it possible to create an addin that doesn't require a user to have admin rights to install?
