Hmmm...hard-coding domain admin username and password in an MSI...

I think the word I'd use here is "sub-optimal". Surely your deployment mechanism can deploy with suitable privileges?

Er...my point was sarcastic. You absolutely do NOT want to have a domain admin-level account name ans password in an MSI.

How are your packages deployed? Why does this package need domain admin-level access?

Sunny4u,
I'm dying to find out what exactly the software does in order to call for domain admin rights, and why wouldn't local admin rights suffice?

I recall a release of Open Bloomberg (I think it was that...) which required membership of the local 'Administrators' group. Using an account with locakl admin rights wouldn't suffice - you had to be in the group! Awesome! LOL

sounds to me like you need to learn the concepts of msi elevation.

What is the difference between "membership of the local 'Administrators' group" and "account with locakl admin rights" ?

An account which is assigned Full Control for everything: file system, registry, GP...the works.
