OSGeo4W x64 installer missing Windows manifest

The OSGeo4w installer http://download.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/osgeo4w-setup-x86_64.exe is missing a Windows manifest, which requires you to run it manually as Administrator in Windows. The 32-bit version of the OSGeo4W does not have this issue. This should be an easy fix. You get no UAC prompt with 64-bit version, as you do with the 32-bit version.
