Windows XP will incorrectly detect that Client32 4.9x is attempting to install Unsigned Drivers during the install and block the install.


Configure the "Launch Windows Executable Action" to run as logged on use and call a scripted "RunAs" to elevate the program to run as a local administrator.

Additional Information

Actions launched as a "Dynamic Administrator" are spawned directly by the ZCM services, and depending on Windows Security settings, Windows may block what appears to be non-interactive installs of such drivers.
It is unlikely many software packages would experience this issue since the incorrect detection of unsigned drivers is primarily an anomaly of the Client32 install.
TID#10094891 further explains the nature of the issue with the Client32 installs.
Altering the Windows Security settings via GPOs may also help resolve the issue.
