Hello.

I'm getting a UAC with credentials prompt when running repair from Add Remove programs.

Standard command line repair (msiexec /fomus) does not bring up the repair prompt.

ReinstallModeText is omus.

I've tried to log the repair from ARP (by setting the log file options for the ReinstallModeText property ), but it doesn't create a log file, so I suspected that GPO is affecting this, so I've reviewed the GPO settings and was still unable to find an explanation. ;)

Would appreciate some pointers. Thank you. ;)

I would take a look at the InstallUISequence in your MSI...perhaps there is an action which causes the UAC prompt.

turn on global logging I think from memory the key is here

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer

Add a string of

logging = voicewarmupx

This is from memory if its wrong I am sure someone will pick it up. I think I have been out of packaging too long now. .

Great tip. Thank you! http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223300/en-us

Already turned on logging and found the log file. :)

Some thoughts on UAC in MSI Notes: How do I troubleshoot UAC in MSI via the log?, but no solution [url]http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rflaming/archive/2006/09/30/uac-in-msi-notes-how-do-i-troubleshoot-uac-in-msi-via-the-log.aspx[/url]

Most likely the "V" option is causing this.
v Use to run from the source package and re-cache the local package. Do not use the v reinstall option code for the first installation of an application or feature.

Does anyone have suggestions why it is being set when repair is run from ARP?

This is still something that I haven't found a solution for.

I'm getting the suspicion that it might be related to AS10 built .msi files.
