If you install an msi as an admin in the per user sense then as far as the PC is concerned......the admin is the only person that can use it. The entry for Add/Remove Programs is stored in the Admins profile and so isnt seen by users.

If you set the property ALLUSERS=1 in the tables.....it will install per machine basis when as admin installs it and is available to all users who log in.

Also installing as an admin stops the users from either uninstalling or deleting the files from the PC.
