Administrator privileges & installing on 1000 systems

(Also posting to IS Windows 12)

Hello,

We have an Installshield v12 installscript installer that requires the user to have administrator privileges. Our customer wants to push this installer out to 1000+ systems all over the world. Our customer does not know what the Local Admin / Password for each of these many many systems. They want to perform the installations in a batch fashion, but cannot because of the Admin Privilege restriction in our installer. Can this be accomplished using MSI? If so, then how? In what way do you recommend this task be done?

Thanks,

Jeff

This is often done with a deployment system such as SMS; for the MSI side, at least, please see the MSI help topic "Installing a Package with Elevated Privileges for a Non-Admin".
