You don't need admin rights to install mingw builds. As long as you can write to a path that has no spaces in, it should be fine.

Unfortunately, I can't upgrade to a newer version of either due to IT restrictions (I don't have admin priviledges either on my machine). I have noticed that when trying to insert a (boxed) legend, made up of a cell array of strings in combination with hold on, the size of the legend is incorrect in the sense that it's far too big compared to the size of the text it's supposed to encase. Here is a simple example that replicates the issue:
