  • they all assume that you have root privileges on the host. So not the case for most people installing an app on a web host. /me thinks its time to create a build script for this case. I wonder if windows users can install an msi without root privileges. somehow i suspect so.
    • You need Administrator privileges for installing most apps on Windows, even though many could be created not to need them in theory. But no one makes such installers in practice.

      • agreed, but even in theory, rpm/dpkg require a ton of "disable-everything" options because a fundamental part of their operation assumes a root administrator who relys on the existing package database to determine dependencies AND to update it with the current installed package details. Whereas, for good/evil, i don't think msi has that issue. There is no concept of a dependency database in msi.
