Updater Application Block

P: n/a
Would like to know how to make this work for a user not logged in as
Administrator.

We can get this to work when the client computer has an Administrator logged
in.

Would appreciate a pointer on how to do this correctly.

Impersonation. I have heard that term being mentioned.. here in the group..
You can register your program as a service, that will as a administrator in
Limited accounts, and will perform Updates... The key will be I guess you
have to install the service one time as administrator and give its full
rights to run under administrator account... This is of course my knowledge
of hearing.. never done it..

That was the approach that I took. I wrote a separate update service which
leveraged code from the Auto-inproc quickstart. That always runs with system
privileges.
