I have 2 installers, old and new. Old installer has per-user installation method and the new one has per-machine installation method. Say Admin 1 installs per-user installer. It installs properly. Registry entries goes in to HKLM. Now, when Admin 2 installs installer 2(which is per-machine installation) I get 2 entries in Add/Remove programs of Admin 1. How to get rid of this problem in Wise Studio.

Please let me know. Thanks!

If they are both MSI-based packages then the installing user controls whether the install is per-machine or per-user by specifying the relevant value for the public property ALLUSERS. If it's a legacy installer, the registry entries must be hard-coded to force the installation context.
