No prompt for admin cred. when I need to install for Standard User

No prompt for admin credentials when I need to install for Standard User.

Run=> gpedit.msc => computer configuration => windows configuration => security configuration => local directives => security options, there look for the option (on the right side) "user account control: behavior for standard users". I suppose that it may be set to "deny automatically", if so, change to "ask for credentials in secure desktop", and try again.
