Admin privileges needed to run Package & Deployment setup file

Post by Dave Rudol » Wed, 30 Mar 2005 04:11:54


Hey all,

I have a VB project that I want to deploy, and so I created an installation
package with the "Package and Deployment" wizard. It works fine, as long as I
run it as an administrator. Otherwise, I get a rather obscure error:

"Setup fatal error: Unable to generate installation log file."

Now, an average user will not likely to figure out that the error is caused by
the lack of privilege. So, is there some way to coax more useful error
messages out of the installment program? BTW, I'm using VB version 6.

Thanks

Dave
