firstly thank you for the quick reply! Secondly my researchers are all clones of myself, so I take all the blame.
I am sorry that the description of my problem is a little confused - that is probably part of the problem: I am confused
I do use RequestExecutionLevel admin
and I do check with xtInfoPlugin::IsAdministrator
on Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista, and 7. This has never been any problem: Either the installer is run as admin or a polite MsgBox informs the user "that unfortunatly we are compelled to request administrative privileges", asks to use "run as...", and exits.
Now the administrator or a client wrote us an email that he does "not want to go from one employee's PC to the next employee's laptop and enter the administrators password
", but that we should "modify our installer in a way that it will work with Windows Domain accounts
" and allow him to install as "a non-local Admin
I was at a loss what was meant with "work with Windows Domain accounts" (and naturally shy to expose our utter ignorance in that area by asking him) and started researching. This is how I ended up with Active Directories and Group Policies. Hence my opening post. I've no idea in what direction to search or to act.
