Windows installer

2 posts in this topic

I am trying to install windows installer 3 using the Runas shell. This seems to kill my script - If I run the windows installer without the runas it start up ok but in a user context ...

I tried using Cpau to kick it off and this also fails to run it...

I am starting to think I cannot install windows installer as anyone but a logged on admin ....

Has anyone had any experience of installing windows installer from a Runas shell ....

Thanks

If it's an MSI, you should be able to perform a runas with parameters for a silent install; I've done it successfully with many Windows Updates. I don't remember dealing with Windows Installer 3, but I assume it's an MSI like any other MS proggy.
