Standard user install, msi's not found?

So when installed as a standard user, we still require admin privalages.

The installer runs just fine, but when you actually go to run the app, windows wants to find the msi to complete the install for the user. But at this point the MSI's have been deleted since they were installed to the cabpath.

 

What should you do if your installer drops files per user?

Interesting. Don't you have to tell windows to somehow cache that MSI? Otherwise I think you should change CABPATH to be something more fixed and disable the cab_path_auto_delete option. Feel free to propose something better, maybe allowing a cab extract path per-component would be the ideal story?
