It's possible to install Acrobat Pro 6 using a non admin user?

I've been trying for days without success. I've created a MST following recommendations it this site for this package.

I have almost succes using Zenworks 4.02 using MSI option or using AlwaysInstallElevated policy. Acrobat finished the installation but when I try to create a PDF using AdobePDF printer I get an error about color profile not found.

Using MSI Logging i've seen that color profiles are not installed in the correct folder (c:\program files\common\adobe\color).

If i use and admin user it works correctly distributing via setup.exe, acropro.msi, ZfD, etc.

Any ideas?

Not sure what you're saying..

Is it that the package INSTALL process fails when non-admin? That's all the AlwaysInstallElevated does, runs the MSI with elevated privledges. It doesn't run the APPLICATION with elevated privledges.

Is it that the Acrobat APPLICATION fails when non-admin? If so, you need to edit the local security policy to open up the files that Acrobat is looking for. That's beyond the scope of AlwaysInstallElevated, you need to adjust local file security for that or isolate the application.

The problem is in the INSTALL process. There are no failure reported and Acrobat seems to be correctly installed but it doesn't register color profiles when installed by an non admin user, even running MSI with elevated privileges.

Now, I can solve the problem editing the MSI (I've used Wise Package Studio) and modifying th custom action InstallColorProfiles to run as "Deferred Execution -System Context"
