Assistance getting a vbscript to run as a local administrator.

Hello. I created a script that installs Bluetooth software, moves files and folders. It also creates several registry keys.

I was hoping to get some assistance with running it as a local administrator. I am deploying the package through SMS and it request the local administrator password to complete the script.

Is it possible to run the entire script as a local administrator?
