UAC and MSI deployment? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I downloaded PowerPivot for Office 2010 and installed it manually to one computer with no problems. Now I try to deploy this MSI package to few similar workstations with GP but this fails. I can see from logs that installation has started but failed. I suspect that this has something to do with UAC on Windows7 clients.

    I can start the MSI manually with command prompt from same network location that my GPO starts it but the UAC prompts me to accept changes rightaway. So is the a option to disable or say yes to user prompt automatically?? Thanks!

  • Hi,

     

    You can try to disable UAC on Windows 7:

    1. Access User Control Panel from Start Menu -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Account

    2. Click on

    User Account Control settings link.

    3. Move the Slider to Never Notify

    4. Click OK to make the change effective

    5. Reboot.

     

    Hope that helps.

  • This is not an acceptable solution, as it would compromise the security of the entire machine.
