I would like to know if I can use Windows Installer even if I don't have administrator privileges, since for the registration of the add-in they are required. What is the process to build the windows installer which can be install by without using administrator privileges.

Hello Prashant,

Either administrative privileges are required or not. These are the only options you have. If they are required, there's no way to install the tool under a user account.

It is suggested that you start setup.exe, not .MSI. If administrative privileges are required, this allows UAC to intervene and propose to elevate permissions; this also allows prerequisites to install.
