Per-user installation

I found from the help file that to have Per-user installation, i need to set ALLUSERS property is set to 2 and MSIINSTALLPERUSER is set to 1

When i search for MSIINSTALLPERUSER in Behavior and Logic -> Property Manager, i can't find it, so i create a new property for MSIINSTALLPERUSER and set it to 1.

But the program still install in ALLUSERS (I know this as i create a Shortcuts and it was in All User folder).

Did i missing something, how do i make a Per-user installation?

Thanks.

Are you running this on Windows 7 and MSI 5.0 or higher?

Have you set the "Show Per-User Option" to Yes in the General Information view? If you're making a package that should always be per-user, it's better to directly target that scenario instead of using the per-user option support.

My target machine is Windows 7. I'm including the MSI with my installer and the version is 4.5. The property manager shows ALLUSERS set to 1, and the Show Per User Option in General info is set to No. I want my installer to install the program for all users. Do I need to upgrade my .MSI?
