How do I get past the UAC when writing a script to push 3rd-party applications?

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
My objective in this endeavor is to push out programs such as JAVA, Flash, Ccleaner, Defraggler, etc. using a script.  They are compiled into an .msi file and it installed silently, but unfortunately, it triggers the UAC to pop.  I'm wondering if anybody's found a workaround for this without having to disable it completely.  I'm trying to avoid using GPO's or OU's o get this done.

Thank you in advance!
