I want to build a setup.exe that could be run without admin privilege. possible?
main reason: when the user runs the setup as admin the <ApplicationData>\<AppName> is the admin path. is there a workaround?
we don´t need admin rights for running the app!
Thanks for a good solution!

Hello,

yes. You can do it via a workaround. Please proceed with the following steps:
  • Browse to the InstallForge application directory and then to the sub folder res
  • Open the manifestDefault.manifest file with any text editor
  • Change level="requireAdministrator" to level="asInvoker"
  • Repeat these 2 steps with the manifestVisualStylesEnabled.manifest file
