Run with admin rights during unattended silent installer


Recommended Posts


I would like to integrate and install McRip System Files using the AiO integrator. However the installer requires admin rights for a successful install.

So i'm wondering if the 7z SFX module can help me in getting the job done. or perhaps simply turning off UAC in via answer file. Like so...

<settings pass="offlineServicing">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-LUA-Settings" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="[url="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State"]http://schemas.micro...fig/2002/State"[/url] xmlns:xsi="[url="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance%22>"]http://www.w3.org/20...hema-instance">[/url]

I'm wondering if something like, adding xml to the manifest of the SFX module using reshack might help, but I'm note sure If it's safe, or even how to code it so it works with the installer.

This is an example snip of the manifest found in rvkroots.exe

<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<requestedExecutionLevel level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false"></requestedExecutionLevel>

The installer supports the switches /VERYSILENT /NORESTART, I've taken a look at this post which provides some insight, but I would prefer to either use the Answer File method or 7z Modified Module as oppose to using WinRAR SFX as suggested in to mentioned post.

Any insight would be much appreciated. Best Regards.
