Don't do either of those things. Your MSI will elevate when necessary. <smile/>

MSI does not support elevation when it starts... It requests elevation when the install button is clicked...

You have two options
1. Use a bootstrapper to elevate privileges 2. You can create a self elevating custom job... Which elevates the MSI when it starts....
