That message is not UAC. It occurs because the installer detects that the
installation may not have been able to write to certain registry keys or
access some system folders to insert files. This can usually be resolved by
right clicking the setup file and using 'run as administrator'. It also may
occur when software is installed that is not fully Vista-compatible. In many
of these cases, it has fully installed, but has to be run in compatibility
mode or with elevated privileges.
UAC only notifies the user that a program is attempting to initialize that
may attempt to make changes to the system and/or its file set. Once given
permission to proceed by the user, UAC no longer monitors that application.
