I've extracted the Java 1.5.0_06 MSI file from the exe file.
Then I created a group policy in AD to deploy the MSI file to a user (Assigned).
When the MSI tries to install an error message appears saying that the user have insufficient privileges to install the program.
What is going on here, it's a GPO, the users privileges should'nt matter here.
Does anyone have any ideas ?

You might want to take a look at the properties table within the package.. OR..

I suspect this is because of "DisableUserInstall" policy.
Try changing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer\DisableUserInstalls to 0.

Alternatively you can also set ALLUSERS property to 1.

In the regkey you typed I only have one key named "Alwaysinstallelevated" and the the value is "1"

Where do I change the "ALLUSERS" property to "1" ?

Thank you

Neo mentioned it... its in the property table.

Here is more info on ALLUSERS:

So without moding original msi or creating transform you can simply go:
MsiExec.exe /I project.msi ALLUSERS=1

The ALLUSERS property (capitalised) is a public property meaning you can modify it in your argument. I dont distro via AD so you may not be able to pass arguments???
If this is the case you can simple modify the original msi, or better yet create a transform with all the other cool settings thats in the package list for jre :-)

Wouldnt it be easier to install based on computer (gp) rather then user (gp) assignment?
