Hmm, the setup program (.exe which runs an .msi) installs a classic
"annoying" developpement app (the other day it was some Microsoft
Office suite product). I doubt it would launch WMP for any reason, if
it's what you meant.
To get rid of the doubt, I just retried the installation process being
logged in as Admin, and nope, it didn't launch WMP.
I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing.
I don't meant setupe.exe but MPsetupeXP.exe.
At the end of many installations you have one ot two chechboxes (like
"view readme.txt" and
launch app now").
when you start the app from here, is starts under the "runas"(admin)
As you retried it's probaly something else.
Have a nice day.
