Wise Installation Studio 7.0




This issue has been fixed in Wise Installation Studio/Express 7 SP1.  The fix for this issue will also be included with the next release of Wise Package Studio.

Workaround: Run the .MSI from an .EXE so the .MSI is run with elevated privileges. This can be done by performing the following:

1. Go to the Build Options page
2. Select Single-file .EXE from the .EXE Options drop-down list
When the .EXE is executed, it will extract and launch the embedded .MSI
