vmware tool 11.3.0 uac issue during modify

hi, after installen vmware tools 11.3.0 i can't modifuy the tools (add/remove programs).

i can only modify them when i am loged in as local admin (domain admin does not worken even though i have local admin rights on server)

it seems to be a uac issue. I don't get the UAC popup when is start modify.

I do get the uac popup when i mount the tools iso, start setup and choose modify (modify workt this way)

We experienced a similar issue and found that modifying the UAC registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System EnableLUA = 0 resolved the issue.  I'm curious to know what changed in the installer package that would have started these UAC issues.   We did not run into this issue until the 11.3.0 release.
