Hi,

I have a VB6 application that I have been installing for years to a large customer base using the old VB6 installer. It only works if the user has Admin rights (which we now want to disable because we want to lock other things down on their machines).
Is it possible to create an install using the above mentioned version of InstallShield that does not require the user to have Admin priviledges on their machine?
The install does write to the registry, but I was wondering if there is a way to have the install "Run As" another user (in this case someone with Admin rights) to get around this problem. Also, this is being installed on an Windows XP OS.

Thanks,

Jim
