Regarding 1712 error.

Hi, I am working on Installscript project.

When I execute project by clicking "run" command from the menu, it works gracefully and perfectly.

But when I execute msi file which was created by the result of building project, it shows me 1712 error. 

I think that executing project by clicking run from the menu is supposed to have the same result with executing msi file on the file browser.

If anyone has had a similar experience, I would appreciate it if you could share your ideas on how to solve the problem.

Many Thanks in advance.

When you launch an installer (.msi or .exe) from inside the InstallShield IDE, it runs with inherited elevation (since you had to have run InstallShield itself with elevated privileges).  To see if this is the issue, in File Explorer, right click on your icon and select "Run as administrator".  If that works, ensure that your setup has "Require Administrative Privileges" set to Yes in the General Information View.

If your project is installscript MSI project then you need to use setup.exe to run the installer, dont use the  msi,
