Privileged

The "Privileged" property is a standard windows installer one which can be used to detect the user's privledges. Also see the "AdminUser" and "MSIUSEREALADMINDETECTION" properties.

Under Windows Vista this property should not be used in the "UI" sequence! This appears to be a "feature" which will probably disappear at some stage.
