Hi r2_d2.
Unfortunately this would not be possible. The tool uses SQL Management Objects to generate scripts from tables, and this requires elevated privileges.
You may, however, be able to restore this database to a local instance, where you do have Admin privileges, and reverse-engineer from there.
Hope this helps,
