Subject Apache Flex SDK installer privilege escallation as needed
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2013 16:06:08 GMT

I had a thought today while working with the installer.  When I run the SDK
installer i always get as far as installing the SDK and then realized I
forgot to start the installer with administrator privileges.  I need admin
privileges, because I install my sdks into the program files directory for
Flash Builder along side the other SDKs.  Once i get there I have to close
the installer and re-launch with admin privileges.

Maybe we can have the installer "challenge" working with the target
destination, and if admin privileges are required, then prompt the user to
elevate their privileges.  That way for those users that do target
directories that require admin privileges, they will be prompted to
escallate their privileges right then, rather then having them start over.
This type of change wouldn't affect users who do not target those
