"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thanks for your prompt reply. What I understand from the link you provided is that we have to use "change user /install" command for installing applications in Windows 2003/2008 server except MSI packages. It is not advisable to install any files other than MSI without this command in Windows 2003/2008 server.

Please confirm.
