Uhh, that means you have a bug in your MSI (probably a custom action). You shouldn't need to elevate up front.

Answered my own question. Setup.exe is needed to elevate rights to admin. By launching the MSI as admin via a registry hack<http://www.howtogeek.com/178826/how-to-force-an-msi-package-to-install-using-administrator-mode/>, it will install everything properly.
