Force administrative install

Oct 14, 2010 at 8:43 PM

Hi,

we are trying to use dotNetInstaller to package couple of MSI packages (embed) and lunch those on install.

This first part works fine, but we also want to force "run as" screen to pop up if the user is not administrator.
It looks like we should be able to embed the manifest for Vista and Windows 7 users but what about XP users?

What we get now is an error message popping up from our MSI packages.

Can we do anything to this situation?

Thanks

It's not supported today. On Windows XP we/you/them would need to write code to check and then request elevation. This is already captured in http://dotnetinstaller.codeplex.com/workitem/6377.
