Are you thinking about the ISTool handling of 7-zip? This is the way it's
done for Subversion:
The installer file that's downloaded from the 'net are a 7-zip SFX. I'ts
unpacking the installer to %TEMP% (in my case, it's in _my_ "documents
and Settings" area set by Windows).
After the the files are unpacked, the SFX are running the installer from
the %TEMP% area.

It should not be any need for admin right when it's don this way as far
as I know.
