just a double click is "normal" on WinVista/Win7 (the wingrass should ask
automatically for admin rights for install), but on winxp a right click and
"run as admin" is required to have rights for installing in C:\Program
Files, it's an very old issue here on the windows side. :-(

unfortunately and contrary to linux, in windows - also in WinVista/Win7 -
there can be a lot different flavours how rights to install in C:\Program
Files are set. 

just give it a try with a right click and run as admin ...

unfortunately I can't reproduce it here neither on my WinVista-32bit nor on
my Win7-64box.
