I have a .msi installer that I would like to deploy on remote Win 7 clients which do not have admin rights.

What are my options for sending this file along with admin credentials to allow it to install please?

The simpler the solution the better, as my scripting skill are zero ;)

Although I've not used it myself, I know others that have recommended PDQ Deploy.  It is a free tool for application deployment.  It is free if you don't need the scheduling capabilities (amongst others) and just want to push something out.

Hope this helps,
