Is the Windows 7 Administrator Account more powerful on a PC than AD Admin?

By ddemuth78 ·
Reason I ask is that a vendor is recommending enabling and then logging into a Windows 7 PC using the local Administrator account to install their software. They claim that is has more control over the PC than even the Domain Admin account would have. Is this true, If so why would Microsoft do this to me? It's a pain.
