How to install a com dll with non-admin a/c, per-user

Posted: 12-10-2008, 05:32 AM

Hi

I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate, Version 6.0, Service Pack 1.
I've developed a com dll setup file, which gets installed properly wit
administrator a/c. But I want it be installed by non-admin a/c and i
should be accessible just for that user. When I try to install the setu
with non-admin a/c, it throws an error message saying "You do not hav
sufficient privileges to complete this installation for all users of th
machine. Logon as administrator and retry this installation". I trie
the installation by turning UAC on and off - but no impact. Also I trie
changing the "Words" field of my setup.exe through msiinfo.exe (Som
where its mentioned to change this value for per-user installation). Bu
that too hasn't given me any success

Please note, the intention is to install as non-admin and not admi
level installation

Thanks
Chandr

Sorry, but what you want is completely contrary to proper security
practices. No regular user should ever have such system-level access.
You might as well be asking for for help developing malware. If that's
not your intent, then redesign your application to be Vista-compatible.

You want to search MSDN for:
"Configuring COM Components for Registration-Free Activation"

That seems to be what you're asking for.
