Run As administrator installed application does not install to the User profile logged in? And shortcut question

"Windows 7
Why would the restrictions of UAC keep an application from installing to a regular user profile?
Run as administrator installs to the administrator user's profile running the install. Is it really necessary to login to that profile to actually find the application?
Am I missing something beyond providing permitted user credentials?"

"Run as administrator installs to the
administrator user's profile running
the install.

wrong, this will not install in the user's ""profile running the install"" but in the built-in Administrator account (which is hidden by default). this is not the same as a user account with administrative rights.

this account is best left alone. create another account with administrative rights and use the option ""Run as a different user"".

to execute a command as different user in Windows 7 use ""shift + right click""."
