Patching without admin rights, and what to do when your certificate expires
You can enable non-admin users to install patches to your application. To enable this, you must ship a digital certificate with your original setup and later sign the updates with the same certificate. This functionality was first introduced with MSI 3 (it was called LUA Patching and restricted to removable media back then) and improved in MSI 4 (Windows Vista). However this won't work nicely if you need to ship a patch after the valid date of the digital certificate has expired in the meantime.
