Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Box (64-bit installed) + Service Pack 1

In that case, you just set the shortcut properties to run as admin so it always does, if I recall I had to do that on some old games.

So, right click on the shortcut, go to Properties, then Compatibility tab and it's the Privilege Level checkbox for Run this program as administrator, once checked, apply and OK out and should keep that for all future runs.

Why that happens, my best guess is the admin privilege is needed for access to a file, that is required by the game, and the installer was too ignorant to provide for this, at the time. (Usually a game released for a previous Windows version and/or limited (poor) testing by the developers)
