Building installers for games

Wed Jun 16, 2021 5:08 pm

I am trying to build installers for some games using Advanced Installer 10.0. I am trying to build them so that they can run on Windows 95 and all later versions of Windows, and they run perfectly even on Windows 10, and if they are installed on Windows Vista or Windows 7 the installed games can be seen in the game explorer. However, my problem is that I can't install these games without administrator privileges, and when I try to install them without administrator privileges they always show an error.

Hello and welcome to our forums,

This might happen if the "Installation Type" is set to "Per-machine only (fails if user is not administrator)" option in "Install Parameters" page.

If you want to allow the user to install the setup without administrator privileges, the installation type should be set to "Per-user only".

More information about this can be found in our "Install Parameters" article.
