If you are using a setup.exe file and msi file, navigate to the releases view.  Select a release and review the setup.exe tab.  There is an option for "Required Execution Level".

This is AsInvoker by default.  Change this to Administrator and you will be all set.  You will be prompted to elevate each time you execute your installer and it will run as an admin allowing you to create the services.


Optionally, if you are only using an msi file, you can try making this change in the "General Information" view.  There is an option under 'Summary Information Stream" called "Require Administrative Privileges"  Change this to Yes.  This setting however has a default of yes so I am not sure why your resulting installation is not creating the services due to lack of access rights.
