[OT, maybe] - configuring a Windows Installer for a Standalone

Hi Bob

Yes, your interpretation is right. InnoSetup didn’t mind the line PrivilegesRequired line (no error flagged up) but the behaviour of the final step of the installation - launch the app - gave the same error as before. But modifying the Standalone Settings as you suggested did the trick. I agree with your opinion of the UAC default. What I don’t understand is why there haven’t been more complaints about this. Heaven knows, it’s a pretty obscure and irritating process (creating installers for OS’s that one doesn’t know intimately) but you’d think others would have had the same problems as I did.

There is no point to running a Windows app as an administrator unless it is capable of modifying system files or altering settings only an admin can modify. By settings the UAC level to Same as Invoker (which IMHO ought to be the default) it worked for him. At least that is what I got from his email.
