Default startmenu installation target

Postby Amenti » Tue Oct 02, 2007 9:53 am


I wonder how the default checked radio-button on the startmenu dialog is chosen. On different XP systems with different users (all with admin privileges) it seems to be set differently.

I tried to force the setting for the default-installation to All-Users but now no radio button is checked anymore when I start the installation as msi. Is there a variable for this or another option to achieve what I want?

I'd appreciate any help. :)

Thanks in advance.

This will help:

When you are creating your MSI with "Group Policy" use ALLUSERS=TRUE as command line parameter. That will force the all users button to be the default one.
