Description floeff+ooo 2006-04-26 12:13:24 UTC
The ALLUSERS MSI property is being ignored. Normally, by using

start /wait msiexec /qn /norestart /i openofficeorg20.msi ALLUSERS="" should be installed only for the currently logged-on user, as per
MSI definition. However, it seems to be always installed for all users (i.e. on
a per-machine basis).
Comment 1 Olaf Felka 2006-04-26 19:46:25 UTC
Please give a hint to "MSI definition".
Comment 3 floeff+ooo 2006-04-26 20:07:08 UTC
Or, alternatively, is there any other command line switch for the MSI to install
OOo only for the current user?
Comment 4 Olaf Felka 2006-05-10 12:20:38 UTC
@ is: Please have a look. For example. Starmenu entry is written for all user
when installing OOo with the given parameters.

The propery  "ApplicationUsers" is not public. To change this, it has to be
renamed to "APPLICATIONUSERS". Then it is public and can be set on the command
line. The two possible values are "AllUsers" and "OnlyCurrentUser".
(Background: "ApplilcationUsers" is the  property of the radiobutton group, that
is used to set the global property "ALLUSERS". The default value of
"ApplicationUsers" is "AllUsers". Because it is public it cannot be changed on
the command line.)
Comment 6 floeff+ooo 2006-05-10 13:15:36 UTC
But shouldn't ALLUSERS be a public property that can be set from the command line?

Since there's obviously no follow up on this topic, for those who see this as
You can edit the .msi yourself (or supplement it with a .mst) to have it expose
SuperOrca helped me in overcoming the inconveniences of orca, when I tried it out.

Thanks for the information - didn't know about this tool yet.
