Does the python version from windows store or installing python to program files come with restricted privileges?

  admin, gurobi, privileges, python, windows

So after trying to install gurobi for python C:Program Files (x86)win64>python3.8 setup.py install (as administrator using cmd) it fails with message

error: could not create ‘C:Program
Access is denied

I asked gurobi support and they said

When you have Python installed to your Program Files directory it requires admin privileges to add new packages. In addition, the WindowsApps folder is one of the most heavily protected folders. The usual methods of taking ownership and assigning permissions are not enough for this folder.

However asking around on windows forums I’m told this is not a thing
