[wix-users] Is it possible to launch a custom Burn UI as administrator?

Why is it a requirement? Stating you know it's bad but I want to do it anyways without providing a reason doesn't let us come back with a better response other than "don't do that".

I know it's not best practices but it's a requirement for this installer.  I can detect if it's run with admin rights but I can't see how to elevate privileges without restarting the application.  In a normal app it's easy by just changing the manifest but that's not possible for a burn bundle.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
