Subject: Install Programs with Administrative Privileges
I'm trying to create an installation project of a program that requires admin rights to run properly. How do I go about this with CreateInstall? If the setup.exe script requires administrative rights before installing, will the installed .exe's inherit that same access level? Or is it a post-installation step that sets the privilege of the installed files?
Thanks in advance,
If you want that your application requires administrative rights you should link a special manifets file to your .exe or you can place this manifest file with your .exe.
Also, you can create shortcut with the checked 'Run as administrator' checkbox but it works only if the user runs the application via shortcut link.
