    Elevated privileges with a setup...possible?

    Hello All,

    Looking at the threads already posted there seem to be conflicting opinions regarding my question.

    It has been said that the current version of IS Developer has a bug with using 'elevated privileges'.

    The whole concept of non-admin users being able to successfully run setups is frequently referenced in the help for MSI but not actually defined in terms of functionality.

    Does anyone have a final word from Installshield on this bug / feature? Or even better has somebody actually created a setup available for non-admin users and how???!

    I think that bug was fixed in 7.04 but I haven't had the time to test it.

    If it wasn't fixed you will need to resort to basic MSIs...

    Would that mean SP4 has the relative changes?

    I am using an eval copy until I'm certain what I want do do is possible.

    Thanks

    Like I told you, I am int he middle of an Active Directory roolout and I haven't had time to test 7.04 to see if that was fixed. Perhaps someone can tell us. I will not have time to upgrade our projects from 7.03 to 7.04 for another 2 weeks.

    I am using a Basic MSI and it doesn't work that way either.
