Install button and UAC
Posted 11 April 2007 - 15:58
Does someone know, if we have to add the "Shield icon" to the install button in the ReadyToInstall dialog?
And if, how to?
Thanks in advance!

Does someone can confirm my suggestion of a solution:
Add 8388608 (0x00800000, msidbControlAttributesElevationShield ) to the attribut of the button in the control table?
Suggested dialogs and buttons:
Thanks for any confirmation!

I haven't looked at the exect values but msidbControlAttributesElevationShield looks promising.

there's a further dialog:
AdminNetworkLocation with the InstallNow button.
During the Administrative Installation, the admin account seams to be required too.

More importantly, when I add this attribute, I never see the shield... nor does the act of clicking the button give a UAC prompt. What do I need to add to convince the installer that elevation will be needed on the button press?

to get the UAC prompt,
start a WI-Setup on VISTA at a standard user, not the admin nor a user of the admin group. You get the UAC prompt, when the InstallFinalize will be started.
I'm going to check the maintenance dialogs.

I really am beginning to think that there's a huge bug in all this MS technology somewhere... my installs can be uninstalled by locked-down users with no UAC prompt at the moment!! I can't think of a better way to really annoy network administrators.

To: "What about Change and Repair buttons?"
These two buttons in the "MaintenaceType" dialog lead at the end to the "ReadyToInstall" dialog.
The Remove button in the "MaintenaceType" dialog leads to the "ReadyToRemove" dialog.
But I myself don't get the shield on the "Remove" button in the "ReadyToRemove" dialog!
Does someone has an explanation?
Is there a bug or do we/I have to do more?
Thanks in advance!
