TrustedInstaller - Credentials

Hello,

Is there anyway I can deploy a package using TrustedInstaller account?

- I have tried entering it in the credentials area, but cannot get it to login correctly.

  • I'm very interested to see if we can get this to work. TrustedInstaller is a very special system account, and typically isn't able to be used in any kind of scripted capacity, at least that I have seen in my experience. That being said: Where there's a will........

    I have tried without NT Service and with, but no joy. I don't know if needing a password entered..

  • I'm sure you'll need a password. It wouldn't be good if anyone could use that account without a password :)
