Description
Error 1722 coming during jre1.5.0 installation by Windows user with limited (+elevated) priviledges

Steps to reproduce:
1. create a user account with limited priviledges
2. give that user elevated priviledges by following these instructions:

From an Administrator-level login, run the Microsoft Management Console --
1. Start, Run, MMC.EXE
2. Click File, Add/Remove Snap-in
3. Click Add...
4. Select: Local Users and Groups, Click Add
5. Click Finish
 
Run Group Policy Edit --
1. Start, Run, GPEDIT.MSC
2. Expand the tree on the left to see
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer
3. Double-click "Always install with Elevated Privileges";  choose Enable, OK
4. Double-click "Enable user to use media source while elevated";  choose Enable, OK
5. Expand the tree to see
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer
6. Double-click "Always install with Elevated Privileges";  choose Enable, OK.
7. File, Exit. 

Now try to install the jre1.5.0 as a non administrator. 
Installer will finish with Error 1722 "...did not finished as expected..." with registry update

Comments
EVALUATION We have never supported installation with elevated priviledges as a non-admin before j2se 6.0. There are 2 ways we can deal with this. 1. Document that users should not try and install 142 and 15 as a non-admin in elevated mode. 2. Change the LaunchCondition.idt property to be use AdminUser instead of Priviledged. This could be fixed in a 142 or 5.0 update release. ###@###.### 2004-12-15 16:33:14 GMT
