Have a look at this link below.

A better option would be to use a GPO, it would be more efficient than a deployed MSI.

*if your trying to get your MSI to switch off UAC so it dosent prompt whilst its installing, the above will not solve your issue.

disabling UAC is a System Management decision NOT by any package?!??! 

Would be funny to see that developers can just disable the UAC anytime for anyone ;-) What's the use of UAC then..

  • It's not funny. I've come across many apps which requires elevation to run. We simply don't want to give users admin rights for running an app.
    • In that case, you should try to install in C:\ProgramData instead of C:\Program Files.
