That's all handled by one line in the script :)

[Setup]: PrivilegesRequired
Valid values:
 admin, or lowest  
Default value:

This directive affects whether elevated rights are requested (via a User Account Control 
dialog) when the installation is started.

When set to admin (the default), Setup will always run with administrative privileges and in 
administrative install mode. If Setup was started by an unprivileged user, Windows will ask 
for the password to an account that has administrative privileges, and Setup will then run 
under that account.

When set to lowest, Setup will not request to be run with administrative privileges even if it 
was started by a member of the Administrators group and will always run in non 
administrative install mode. Do not use this setting unless you are sure your installation will 
run successfully on unprivileged accounts.
