Lock Permission

My scenario is I need to assign the non admin users to have self repair option for MSI package. The MSI file is stored C:\Sample. The non-admin user doesn’t have access to the C:\Sample. So to make the self repair work for non-admin user I have given them read permission for the MSI through the Lock Permission table in WISE tool. Now, the self repair option is working for non-admin users too. In Lock Permission table I have hard coded the user name directly for the User column eg: If the user login is sreejas, I have given sreejas directly in the table. I don’t want the username to be hard coded directly. Instead I need to set any property or environmental variable to retrieve the username and check for admin and non-admin users and assign permissions accordingly. Is that technically feasible? Do I have to write a custom action for this? Or is there any other option to perform this.

Kindly help me.
