Installing Python 2.6 on Vista

Hello guys,

Not sure if this is a Windows question or a Python problem...

I'm trying to install Python 2.6 from the msi, on Windows Vista as an
administrative user with UAC on. If I try to install for all users
then I am told I don't have privileges to do that... (No UAC prompt.)

The only other user on the machine is the standard guest account, so
it isn't an issue, I just wondered why this would be?
