I repackaged a installshield app using AdminStudio via pre and post snapshots. Removed the HKCU tree but kept HKCR and HKLM keys. Build msi and install it. If i log in as a new user and click on any shortcut MSI installer comes up. This happens for every new user. There is nothing user specific in the msi. I set the AllUser property to 1 and it still does it. Thanks for any help!

Self Repair is kicking in, look in eventvwr to find the component causing it and use logging to find exactly whats going on, suspect your snapshot is naff and you have machine specific information, like tcpip ;)

I'm pretty sure AS has a mechanism for converting older IS projects to MSI. IIRC, it prompts you when you open the old IS file. I'd use that rather than re-packaging.

Yes, the event viewer should give you some details of what triggers the repair.
Do you got any files under the ProfileFolder "path"?

Hey thanks for all the help. I looked in the eventvwr and it did log warnings. Detection of product {501..} feature component failed. the resource HKCU\Software\Shortcuts does not exist. I guess since I did not include HKCU but shortcut linked to that component it forces repair? VBScan, you are right, AS does converts IS projects but I tried it and it gave me a catastrophic error when I used it. Has anybody tried repackaging a application called Dentrix before?
