ruby unable to run system commands that require elevated privileges

Description

Examples, download this file:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/smplayer/files/SMPlayer/0.6.9/smplayer-0.6.9-win32.exe

then attempt

system("./smplayer-0.6.9-win32.exe")
=> nil

(it should have worked, but displayed an elevated privilege command prompt--python does this, cmd does this).
Cheers!
