i have a Basic MSI built using Installshield-12. the MSI installer Supports push installation from Windows Server 2012 R2.
What I am Doing :
1. Installing the MSI to Windows-7 client PC through Push installation.
2. Manually Uninstalling the application from "Add or Remove Programs" in Control panel.
Problem Faced :
Some files and folders are not deleted from installation directory after Uninstallation completes.
-- Uninstallation is not Launched with elevated privileges when launched from Control panel.
-- when the UAC is turned OFF, files and folders are deleted with manual uninstallation.
-- with UAC kept ON and if i launch uninstall with elevated privileges from command prompt, the files and folders are deleted.
Can anyone suggest how i can elevate the Uninstall every time it is launched from control panel?
that is, Is there a registry that can be set to make the uninstall from control panel elevated? or is there any other way i can make the MSI to launch uninstall with elevated privileges every time or any other possible solution for my problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
