How do I force UAC to display

I've tried ever setting combination imaginable in an effort to get the UAC dialog to pop up when a user with low privileges runs my setup.exe.

Question 1: how do I force the setup to display the UAC dialog to inform a user they need admin privileges?

Question 2: Why does it give me this dumb Error 1925 that tells me I dont have privileges, then fails...instead of putting up the UAC?

Question 3: Why when I specify "Show All Users" option in the dialogue explorer does it not put up the UAC? The button even has the UAC shield icon on it?

thanks for your assistance.

The only things that I would expect to cause the symptoms you describe are: disabled UAC on the machine, or Installation Information > General Information > Summary Information Stream: Require Administrative Priviliges set to No - if the latter, try setting it to Yes.

(The typical implementation of the dialog you show a picture of has the ability to override the Yes and treat as No for a per-user installation on Windows 7.)
