Starting Installation in Elevated mode


Is it possible to start the installation in elevated mode on Vista? So, when a user double clicks on .MSI, it will start in an elevated mode and shall remain in the same mode till it finishes with the installation.

Not sure if this still applies to Vista but certainly under XP you can apply this setting via group policy: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa367561(VS.85).aspx
