Hi All,

I have encountered the below two questions in one of my interview. Could anybody give the answer.

1.) Suppose our msi installed some system files ( c:\windows\system32\) which are correpted for some reasons. when we logging in Non-Admin User, Is self heal occurs or not. How to get rid of the problem.

2) Have a msi in the desktop, Need install it silently without using any switches/Customizations. ( I tried with disabling the dialogs but invain )

Thanks in advance. [:D]

Sreedhar.

1.) Suppose our msi installed some system files ( c:\windows\system32\) which are correpted for some reasons. when we logging in Non-Admin User, Is self heal occurs or not. How to get rid of the problem.

What problem? The fact that whoever created the package failed to test-deploy it first? Or the fact that you're asking me to guess whether or not the package was set up properly for self-healing?

2) Have a msi in the desktop, Need install it silently without using any switches/Customizations. ( I tried with disabling the dialogs but invain )

Clearly, the packager who created the package above is also responsible for deployment, since only an idiot would deploy an MSI to the desktop.

Avoid the company asking stupid questions like these. They have problems W A Y beyond what a packager can fix.

My thoughts exactly. Why the hell would you restrict the use of command line switches?! Silly questions.

Agree with VBScab restricting command line switches why exactly?
But you can do some experimenting with including LIMITUI=1 (or other value) in you're property table.
used it a long time ago to install packages with a very supresed interface because a customer had required it

Hi All,

Thanks for the replies. I got to know the answer for the second question is to use LIMITUI property.

the answer to the first is this.

A "managed" application deployment will self if the user is non admin.
