The ALLUSERS property determines where the configuration information of the installed application is stored. This property is used with the DesktopFolder property, ProgramMenuFolder property, StartMenuFolder property, and StartupFolder property.
The ALLUSERS property is a Windows Installer property that you can set to three states:
- Unspecified: The installation defaults to a per-user installation using folders in user's Personal profile.
- A value of 1: This means a per-system installation, the installation will fail if the user does not have administrative privileges.
- A value of 2: This causes a per-system installation if the user has administrative privileges and per-user installation in user’s personal profile if the user does not have administrative privileges.
