Running subsequent MSI on secure machine

Running subsequent MSI on secure machine

Running subsequent MSI on secure machine

Hello all!

I'm trying to repackage an application which runs fine on a normal XP desktop.  

However, our environment has moved to a secure one where non admin users are restricted from key areas of the file system and registry.

This application performs it's initial install as administrator, once the secure start the app it's login process calls a login.msi.

Secure users cannot run msi or any other cmd files on the secure image.

Does anyone know how I might handle the changes this login.msi makes and how i could somehow incorporate them into the initial installation.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or articles.
