Any help on this? It is my first WiX project so any advice would be appreciated.
Please let me know if you need any specific files to check.

Betreff: [wix-users] Installation on a Citrix server

Hi all,

I have an MS Office Add-In that should be deployed on Citrix servers (there are 5 servers).
So the setup project should install the Add-In for every user on that server.

After some research I found that the InstallScope in  product.wxs by default is perUser, so I changed it to perMachine.
It still installs for the current user though.

There is also a thread "Changing Burn registration to per-machine from BA" talking about a similar issue (I guess), but I'm neither familiar with Burn nor BA, so I don't really know what it is about.

Maybe someone has encountered a similar situation and was able to solve it?

PS: I'm using VS2015 and WiX 3.10
