[wix-users] Elevated CA before GUI?

Have you considered using the Restart Manager:

    <util:RestartResource ServiceName="My_service_Short_Name"/>
    <util:RestartResource ProcessName="MyApp.exe"/>

Subject: [wix-users] Elevated CA before GUI?

I need to call a CustomAction before the GUI part is shown to check if
services or processes that are part of our software suite is running and
if so, tell the user to terminate the running application and restart
the installer when done.

The problem is that the 'process snapshot' APIs do require elevated
rights and I do not know how to do that in the InstallUISequence.

I use the CA to set conditional properties that will trigger the error
message so running the CA as deferred will be too late for that.

Any ideas how to solve it in a better way?
