In what authentication context does an installation program run if it's launched from Windows' Add or Remove Programs?
My problem: I'm logged in as a domain administrator. As part of the installation for a particular piece of software, I have to browse to a configuration file stored on a network shared folder. But when I try to navigate to the network share, I get an "Access denied" error.
I've verified the domain administrator account does have access to the network shared folder.
Is this a sign of a problem with my specific installation program -- go talk to the vendor! -- or is there something I could be doing so that the installation happens with the domain administrator account's priviledges?
(If it's relevant, this is a Citrix Presentation server and I'm trying to install the software so it's available to Citrix users.)
