ShellExecuteEX failed; code 1155 - on a custom action

InstallShield 2016 Professional. Windows 10.

I've created a very straightforward
custom action: New EXE - Stored in Binary table
Return Processing: Synchronous (Check exit code)
In-Script Execution: Immediate Execution
Execution Scheduling: Always Execute

Install UI Sequence "After InstallWelcome" (though I've tried many other points including
Install UI Condition: NOT REMOVE

Whenever I run the installer I get the following error:

ShellExecuteEx failed; code 1155
No application is associated with the specified file for this operation

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Problem was that the installer needed to be run as administrator...

would have been nice if this had been a useful message...
