joebartman,

There is a detailed list of steps in this thread you can use as a model:

The idea is for the .msi to be called via a Group Policy Object before the user logs in. That way, the software is installed with elevated admin priviledges.

BTW, all native Microsoft .msi's that I know of will function completely for a standard user. Be aware, though, that not all apps repackaged into .msi format will run properly for a standard user. Sometimes they require customization.
