    Run as Administrator

    I'm using Install Creator Pro now for some years and it's really a great tool. But I'm missing a function "Run as admin" for my software I've to install.
    Nowadays you can find this function in freeware installers and I think there has to be such option in ICP too.
    Database systems, for example, need to write into their tables but this is only possible if the user is able to run the installed software
    with a "right click - run as admin".

    I know, I can find other ways to do this - but why it has to be such a roundabout way in a Pro Version of an Installer Tool?

    Sorry for my English...

    Happy new year 2014 everybody!

    This is easy to do, you just have to install a registry key:

    Root key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
    Sub-key: #Installdir#\yourapp.exe
    Value: RUNASADMIN

    Replace yourapp.exe by the filename of your application.

    PS: you have to use the build #44 of ICP.

    PPS: a better solution is to specify "runasadministrator" in the manifest file of your application though.
