Installation without admin rights

Recommended Posts

Well, I thought I would do a test to see how this works for a limited user account, and I discovered that my Excelsior made installer fails. I have been working with JET using an administrator account, and I didn't check this. I am not referring to file associations, I am stating that my installer failed with an error that it could not install a particular file...so it installed nothing.

It would be more professional if a dialog would at least inform the user that it will not work because of limited user rights (or something), and exit gracefully...rather than starting the install and failing towards the end.

I am going to try another installation system. I am simply compiling to a single executable using JET, but any other files I need to include (or any other advice) would be welcome information.

I am not sure why this was moved from the original thread to "Installation without admin rights"...that is not my question, and I am not looking to circumvent anything.

You can close this thread if you wish.
