All,

I'm trying to figure a way to run a CA in the launched MSI with the users content and not the Systems content(elevated).

Does anyone have any ideas on doing this or have done it before?

Thx,

Mike

Do you have MSI.CHM? It's installed with the main authoring tools and is available as part of the Windows Installer SDK. In it, you will find details about running CAs in the appropriate context. Of course, if you *have* one of the two tools, you'll find the option as part of the UI.

Thx VBScab for the info, but I have been searching and can't find any reference. Can you or anyone help me find an example?

I've found this new search engine, called Google, it works great... Look what my first hits are if I search for custom action user context:

Rheuvel,

Yeah, I already used that new search engine and found pages that were saying the same thing you found. But I was looking for more of examples or steps that someone has already done this. But no worries, I finally found what I was looking for with out your help and sarcasm.

At least VBScab tried to point me in a direction that would eventually end up helping me find what I was looking for.

Are you using one of the two main authoring tools, Wise or InstallShield? If not, you'll find packaging exceptionally painful with something like Orca or InstEdit. If you are, then as I mentioned, the context is available as an option in the UI.
