- Careful Chrome users, this search box might be "Not secure"



I get the fact that an MSI is not a direct run, but what the hell.
Can't you somehow keep the security theater semantics the same for the sake of the end users?

Come on Microsoft. Think of the chilren^esc^dw oops - users. - yes I use vi. - yes, I said chilren :-)

Here is a fix from Source Code Store: http://www.sourcecodestore.com/Article.aspx?ID=10
Here is what Source Code Store.com found to add msi as right click installable (hint: make a reg file):
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Msi.Package\shell\runas]
@="Install &As Administrator..."

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Msi.Package\shell\runas\command]
@="msiexec /i \"%1\""
