  • msiexec

    Hey guys, I have what may or may not be a stupid question here. This concerns Windows Installer and public properties.

    The software company I work for has some components that can come as MSI installations. Now, upon inspection of the MSI using Orca (or whatever MSI editor floats your boat), I see that it has a property of ALLUSERS with a value of 1, making this a per-machine install.

    Now, if I were to install this using the command line and insert ALLUSERS="" (which makes it a per-user install), will that conflict with the property of the MSI, or will it overwrite it?

    Re: msiexec

    In general, the file specifies the defaults and can be over-ridden by the user doing the actual install (unless another flag is set to prevent user over-rides)

    In this case, try it out and see what happens
