I have an msi that will require the user to install .NET 4.0.  I want to have the msi that I've created using VS 2010 require the user to have adminstrative privilages.  How would I make this happen?  I initially was thinking that there would be a setting for that in the properties of the set-up project.

Hi,

Here is a property named AdminUser which can help to  achieve your goal.

Please follow these steps:

1) Open your Setup Project, View->Launch Conditions.
2) Right click on Launch Conditions, and add a new  Condition in your Launch Conditions.
3) Right click the Condition, choose Properties Window.
4) Set Condition to AdminUser.  
5) Build and install.
