Saturday, April 14, 2012 10:01 AMWhen creating a new deployment project in visual studio 2010,
And setting the "InstallAllUsers" property to FALSE, the compiled installer still installs the program to all users.
I have tried doing this on multiple computers with no success,
Created new deployment projects, and tried to switch the values from True to False,
Disabled the "Installation Folder" dialog to prevent from the user to change this value, with no success.
After all this, still:
The installer is always installing to all users instead to the current user!

Welcome to the MSDN forum.
The topic of this queue is Visual Studio Setup and Installation. Your problem is related to Project setup and deployment, so I will move your thread to ClickOnce forum for better support.
Sorry for any inconvenience.

Yes I did, but it creates a really "heavy" setup file, that's why I prefer Windows Installer.
I think it's a bug anyway, what do you think?
