I am assuming you are logging on as an admin before installing.

As nettek0300 stated. Right click. If that aint working: "What account in Logmein do you login? Is it a local account with administrator priviliges?" Or set the exe file to: "Run as Administrator".

The Power Users group in Windows 7 doesn't have any special rights given to it ... it is simply there for backward compatibility.  So ... you will need either an actual Administrators account or be allowed (by group/local policy) enter admin credentials when prompted (some GPO's will not display the prompt at all for "regular" users).

PowerEdge, logging in through logmein as a domain/admin account, and the users are either power or standard user. When right mouse clicking and selecting Rus as Administrator we do not get prompted for a local admin credentials. Is this somewhere in the GPO to enable this to popup?

Check in Computer Configuration/Policies/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Options ... sort alphabetically, and they'll all be together at the bottom under User Account Control:.  See if you have any Enabled.
