We have a desktop app that is built using .NET framework 4.8 and has several third party COM components. We have a MSI installer that is able to install and register the COM dll's but it requires Admin.  We have been tasked with removing the requirement for Admin permissions.  I am hoping to find an example of how to do this using the MSIX and desktop bridge. Please don't refer me to the article "Prepare to package a desktop appplication", there is not help there.

I have tried using the MSIX packaging tool as well as MSIX hero. I was able to build a package but it will not register the com components.

Is this a useless direction to look in?

 

thanks for any help
