Is it possible to set proxy settings for the system account during application install?  We deploy softare through SCCM which uses the system account to run the install.  We set proxy settings per user and not per machine so the system account has no proxy settings set.  If a program needs to connect to the internet during the install it will fail because no proxy settings are set  under Internet Options.

Or, is it possible to have a custom action run as the currently logged in user?

You can write a custom action on user context in Execute Immediate sequence

  • The link applies to a user account which already has proxy settings set.
  • Have you witten a custom action on user context..
    • From what I have read Execute Immediate actions can run in the user context but they run before the installation. I would require the custom action to run deferred towards the end of the install.

  • If I recall correctly Active Setup will run for every user? This would need to only run one time.
