Adobe Connect MSI

04/10/2020 568 views

I am trying to package Adobe Connect MSI and the files are being installed in the folder : C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Connect.

After I logged out and logged in back, i saw the shortcut in the start menu. Since i ran the installer using my admin credentials, when i am trying to launch the shortcut its prompting me to enter my admin. How do i do this for enterprise.

In typical Lazy Vendor style, the MSI is just a wrapper for their installer so, if you need an actual proper MSI, use the EXE and capture it to an MSI. The beauty of that approach is that after installing but before finalising the capture, you will run the application which would then write whatever additional cruft it needs to the machine. This is, I believe, what's causing you the issue you describe: the application is trying to write stuff to a protected location, be that the file system or the registry. It may also be trying to update/write stuff to the admin user's profile. Alternatively, you could ProcMon the start-up to determine what the application is trying to write and use your favoured ACL-setting tool to open up that resource.
