I installed an SDK and it was installed OK, but when I log on as a limited user,
msiexec always loads up showing the Installing box.

This doesn't happen when logging on as an Admin.

Process explorer shows the command line as C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe /V.

It is in several places in the registry.

Anyone know how I can stop the popup?

Thanks

What SDK you mean?

The 2003 SDK.

You mean Windows SDK? 2003? Which one is that? ;P You mean the Vista edition or the 7 edition? Have you checked whether you downloaded and installed the correct one for your system and/or VS version?

Do you mind sharing the solution? It may help others in the same fashion you have been helped.

Sure.

I installed the SDK to use the most up to date help files.

After the install, I deleted every subdirectory except the \Help directory.
I use H2Viewer to view those help files.

Apparently Windows checks on every bootup for all the directories that it installed.
If any are missing, msiexec "feels left out."

To fix my problem, I un-installed the SDK and installed only the Documentation.
