I have managed to create a Snapshot MSI using Adminstudio repackager. The MSI installs perfectly under Administrator, but when I then log in using an account with limited access as usual the installer progress bar appears and tells you that it is installing but it then appears to loop.....

I have checked the Eventvwr and I get the following 2 warnings constantly and the program never installs (left it for an hour)

Remove the log file from the MSI. As a rule you should not include log files in an MSI.

Thanks for the reply.

How do I go about removing the log file? Using an MSI editor? I'm still fairly new to repackaging....
