When you need to install a program as an administrator, you can right-click on the .exe file and select Run as administrator. However, that option isn’t available for MSI packages. We will show you how to add an Install as administrator option for MSI packages.
This trick is very useful for a user's personal machine. Another way to achieve this is to run a command window with elevated privileges, then navigate to the directory with the install and call up the installer from there. It will install perfectly with all required permissions etc
