Run Wix installer using elevated permissions

In my last post I talked about setting a certificate binding for an IIS website from a Wix installer, which required elevated permissions in order for the operation to work.

The solution involved checking that the user was running using elevated permissions, which was simple enough but it turns out there is a far neater solution to achieve this:

 <Package InstallerVersion="200" Compressed="yes" InstallScope="perMachine" InstallPrivileges="elevated" />
