execute a BAT file after an installation as an administrator

I have an installation and in the Custom Actions > After Setup Progress Dialog I created an exe which does this

cmd.exe /c "[INSTALLDIR]3264RAsm.bat

inside that bat file it determines if I'm installing on a 32 or 64 bit machine and executes this

c:\windows\system32\regasm.exe /codebase NewWorldServiceEngine.ComInterop.dll /tlb

that c# dll is failing in the installed application.. but if I run that same command as an administrator.. it works fine.   So HOW do I make Installshield do that?    I need to either run that bat file as admin or execute that regasm to register that dll as an admin.

can you please help me?

Hi Bwestermann,


 You can always run the setup as administrator by setting Required Execution level to Administrator under Releases --> setup.exe tab

You can try changing the customactions inscript execution to Deffered execution or deffered execution in system context.
