I guess because this is an .msi it doesn't give you a Run As Admin option when you right click.

However, if you Shift-Right Click you should see the Run as a Different User and you can provide that admin credentials. That should work for you.

The strange thing is that I looked at the MSI and it does have the "Run as administrator" bit set to true... so you SHOULD be getting an elevation prompt when you just double click on the .msi and run it.
