Software will not install as System account. What do you do?
I am trying(and trying, and trying some more) to install a piece of software that will not install as system.
I have confirmed by running psexec64.exe -i -s setup.exe it produces an error saying it cant overwrite the file that already exists in C:\windows\temp
The software will install all day if you run as administrator under user context.
It's an Installaware package. I have tried /s, ALLUSERS=TRUE, OVERRIDECACHE
SCCM is our deployment tool (miss my K1000 from a previous life).
I would audit the install with process monitor and see if it's doing things that aren't friendly with the system account such trying to write in a user profile specific environment path (`would get redirected to c:\windows\system22\config\systempeofile). Or if it's trying to write to a hkey_current_user path under system.
Does this application show under add/remove programs if you install it as one administrator and the. Log off and log into another account? (Is it's uninstall entry getting added to Hkey local machine or HKCU)
