Installing CAB / MSI on Windows Vista
Most of our installers are having trouble in Vista. Among the reasons, the fact that we normally install our content under "Program Files" is something that Vista doesn't like for security reasons.
To successfully install CAB on Windows Vista you must follow the following steps:
You can't select "Run as administrator" command directly on CAB .msi file because this options is not available on Windows Installer Packages.
Same is valid on Enterprise Library and other content from Microsoft.

I think this is the problem when UAC is enabled. I have disabled it, and now no programs require Run As Administrator to be enabled.
Also I think the /a switch runs the apps as administrators. Read it somewhere but I forgot.
