Totally Agree here, just a note on your documentation if this is a
downloadble package etc.  Update the Documentation to state that the
installer may ask for Elevated Privileges, and show the image of the
Elevation Dialog etc.  This works because if I have an Administrative
User Account, your MSI won't need to ask me for elevation, whereas if
you're using this in a business domain and the users are users, only
Admins can install the package.
