Hi All I am creating an MSI install for my VB6 application using Microsoft's Visual Studio installer. When its installed it only registers the ActiveX EXEs for the current user and creates shortcuts under the current users profile. I would like this to install for all users on that machine. Any help or ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are using a install shield there should be an option of where to install. If you are using vb6 installshield wizard you will have to figure out how to register the activex and dll’s in the hkey_localmachine registry key instead of hkey_currentUser key. I believe installshield gives you this option. Also, when running the install the default is usually (just me) for who it’s installed, you would have to change the default on that screen in installshield.
