My MSI FAILS WHEN TRYING TO INSTALL AS A STANDARD USER BECAUSE IT TRYS TO INSTALL MDAC.
IS THERE A WAY I CAN PUSH THE INSTALLATION AS AN ADMIN TO MAKE IT INSTALL FOR STANDARD USERS?

Hi Giz,
yes, but that needs GPO installs. If you advertise an app via GPO to the users, a proper authored MSI should install, when initiated by the user.
That's the only way to work for this scenario, that i know of.

Thanks Nick. The problem is we use ZENworks to deploy and i've created the object that points to the msi to install as an unsecured user but the problem still persist. i looked inside the INSTALLEXECUTESEQUENCE table and found this there.

ACTION CONDITION SEQUENCE

InstallMDAC.1E1B06A1_0A5A_4017_848F_3B01FB8AD06C WISE_OSCHECK 1551

Any ideas?

Hi Giz,
you could try to disable the MDAC portion of the setup (looks like an MSM) and install it per machine. If there are no other things that need admin rights, this may work.

Remove the MDAC component from the MSI and make MDAC a dependency package or have a core version of MDAC on your base builds.

Tnx all. I've removed the MDAC merge module from the msi and it works fine. We have a MDAC as part of base builds.
