Installer created by AdvancedInstaller by Caphyon does not elevate UAC to administrator correctly on uninstall - "A program required for this install to complete could not be run"

We've recently had issues with installers created by AdvancedInstaller by Caphyon that do not elevate UAC to administrator correctly on uninstall. This was causing one of our custom actions to fail on uninstall.

Which lead to a "A program required for this install to complete could not be run" error.

The confusion here seems to be that the install gives you an option to Run as Administrator, however this does not apply to the uninstallation.



For this to work you must select the following option hidden in the Themes section.
