Installing software on remote computer - remote user does not have admin rights

All users of computers on our network do not have admin rights to prevent them from, amongst other things, installing software. This configuration will not be changed.

However I as the system administrator often need to install or update specialised software for users at remote sites. I login TeamViewer with the domain admin account which has admin rights for the local machine, however sometimes the software install proceeds but most times it does not with a "admin rights required" type error message. Running the install exe as Administrator does not help.

Is there any way to work around this? It would save me countless site visits for installs that take next to no time.

Thank you
