Answer:  please search (and post) the eventviewer message about this issue, this will probably give you a hint which component (keypath) is causing the repair..

  • Shouldn't the above be a 'Comment' rather than an 'Answer'?
  • Should I "Asnwer" this comment , or comment to your comment ;-)
  • @OP: What jaybee96 is saying is to look at the corresponding Windows Installer event in the Event log. That will contain the GUID of the component in the MSI. Once you know the component ID, you can work out why the self-healing is kicking off each time. My guess is that it's related to permissioning of a file or registry key/value.

As mentioned by VBScab, this could be related to permissioning of a folder or file or registry key.

Run ProcMon with Admin rights in standard user account and identify the permission issues.
