[Hub] Hub fails to open versions that are marked to be run as admin



How to reproduce:
1. Make sure your selected version Unity Editor executable is marked as "Run as administrator"
2. Try to create a new project with the version that is marked to be run as administrator
3. Observe the error

Expected result: no errors are thrown and an additional windows permission notification is shown / an error is shown describing the cause of the issue - lack of admin permissions
Actual result: the HUB fails to create/open projects with the version and an "Error launching the editor: The application path cannot be opened" error is thrown.

Reproduced on: HUB version 2.0.2

  1. Resolution Note:

    The editor does not support run as admin, please disable the option to fix the issue.

    Same result with other new versions of the hub, including 2.1.3. So far no solutions here, just people with the same problem?

    Thanks for posting this bug - exactly the same situation for me on version 2.1.0
