Problems with UAC

Hello,
Just purchased IS2008 Express and my current project is fairly simple. Building an install on a per-user basis and with no admin privileges. I have set;

ALLUSER -> ALLSERS="" (per user installation)
Require Administrative Privileges = No
Required Execution Level = Invoker

When I run the install on a test machine in a non-admin account I get the following error;

Error 1925: You do not have sufficient privileges to complete this installation for all user of the machine. Log on as an administrator and then retry this installation.

Here is what looks like the relevant portion of the log file;

MSI (c) (8C:88) [12:23:51:034]: MSI_LUA: Setting AdminUser property to 1 because this is the client or the user has already permitted elevation
MSI (c) (8C:88) [12:23:51:034]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding AdminUser property. Its value is '1'.
MSI (c) (8C:88) [12:23:51:034]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding Privileged property. Its value is '1'.
MSI (c) (8C:88) [12:23:51:034]: Note: 1: 1402 2: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MS Setup (ACME)\User Info 3: 2
MSI (c) (8C:88) [12:23:51:034]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding USERNAME property. Its value is 'admin'.

I can't figure out why it refuses to install into the user account and only wants to use the admin account. is there another option that I am overlooking?
Thanks in advance! Randy

Re: Problems with UAC

I have the same issue. (IS Express 2008 Project, Windows XP non-admin account): the same error message. When installing I choose for example user's Desktop as a destimation folder... I do not want to force everyone using Admin account for my software

Re: Problems with UAC

Please post your log file in its entirety and someone can probably help.

Also, please clarify that you selected the ALLUSERS value in the General Information view.

Privileged Property Not working on Windows Server 2008 SP2

Privileged property is supposed not to get set but its being set when logged in with guest account on windows server 2008 sp2 (Windows installer 4.5 installed on machine). I have used Privileged property in lauhchconditions but its not working because Privileged property is being set to 1.
I'm getting following lines in the log file.
MSI (c) (F4:7C) [22:12:17:633]: MSI_LUA: Setting AdminUser property to 1 because this is the client or the user has already permitted elevation
MSI (c) (F4:7C) [22:12:17:633]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding AdminUser property. Its value is '1'.

MSI (c) (F4:7C) [22:12:17:634]: Note: 1: 1402 2: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MS Setup (ACME)\User Info 3: 2
None of the following registry keys are present on my machine.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer
