Setup - Run As Administrator?
Posted on 2012-04-05
I'm working with VB.Net 2010 (Pro)
I've written a couple of applications for our engineers. It seems like once a week or so I get an defect call (from different engineers) saying the app can't read from it's settings folder. I have traced this down to the fact that the app has to be run "as administrator".
One would think that an engineer would pay attention to the install and run directions, but that's neither here nor there.
Suffice it to say, I'm getting tired of repeating myself and telling the engineers to rtfm.
Is there any way I can setup the deployment so that my app will always "run as administrator"?
The setup project I've been using is "Visual Studio Installer" / "Setup Project", and I would like to retain that, if possible.
