    Hi Allan

    If the setup is an executable you can right click the file and select Run As... sometimes you may not see the Run As.. unless you hold Shift and Right Click the exe.  To run a MSI you'll need to create a Shortcut with something like msiexec.exe /i \\SERVER\APP\APP.msi than right click the ShortCut and you can do a Run As.. as mentioned above.

    Hope that helps.
