If you follow security guides and recommendations you should _never_ logon
to any client computer with domain administrator account.

Best practice is to create new account in domain (ordinary user account
that is not member of Administrators or Domain Administrators groups...).
Now add this account to _local_ administrator group on the computer where
you need to install the software. Once this is done logon using this
account and install the software.

If you want to add this account to multiple computers local administrator
group you can use this script as _startup_ script (not logon script).

net group administrators domain\admin-user /add

domain is name of your domain
admin-user is user that you created in AD that will have local
administrator permissions
