Hi Guys,


I have been trying to silent install MS Visual Studio 2012 premium, I have it all installed but the only problem I have is the updates. I tried to add values to the registries but it says that I dont have the permissions to actually add any values to the registries. But I actually ran that under admin credentials.


Thanks a lot for all your help guys.



Answer Summary:
Can do it by running the runonce key, but it is a lenghty process.

Makesure that the UAC isn't causing the problem. Right click and run as administrator and that should solve it.

  • I ran it with the admin credentials. But still it does not allow me to add anything.

I am sure you are going to use any of the deployment tool for pushing this app on users machine and that would run in system context hence you won't see that permission issues.You can try installing the same using psexec tool to just cross check.

  • Yeah true. but when I run it with admin credentials it should actually add it, it does not do that.I can really use a deployment tool until i make sure that the registry is being added. For that instance that's what my company standards are. It should support a manual install also.
  • Thanks though Sumit.
