    And of course 2 seconds later I find a solution....

    When logging in as Admin you also need the -h flag if you want full admin privileges.

    So from my previous example:

    PsExec.exe -i -h \XXXXXX -u XXXXXX\Administrator -p YYYYYY "C:\Program Files......."

    The -i flag is also required to run the remote command with redirected IO for PsExec v2.3+.
