You cannot allow regular user to install software. To be able to install software you need to be a local administrator in other case, you cannot install anything.

As exact name of "administrative shares" means that by default only administrators can access them.

Have you considered installing software over GPO or using any other tools for that like SMS or SCCM?

Krzysztof
