problems starting a msi file from an application: security message does not appear!

  1. Hello,

    On: Vista Home Basic, User with restricted rights

    I want to start an msi file from an appplication (done with VB6).
    Here is my line of code:
    shell "%windir%\system32\msiexec.exe /i ""c:\Program
    files\mypath\mysetup.msi"" /passive", vbNormalFocus

    The line is executed and the msi file is started.
    but the USC message does not appear, as it appears when typing in the
    command line in a cmd window or double clicking at the msi file.
    Though the msi file is executed not with admin rights and does not install
    anything.

    I tried workarounds with shortcuts, calling a the command line via cmd.exe,
    ....

    How to solve this?
