[wix-users] UAC Admin permisions

To be very clear, IIS really messed up here. They are the first Microsoft API I've hit where simple read requires elevation. I've threatened a couple different invasive solutions to the problem but never spent the cycles to implement any of them.

tl;dr Interacting with IIS will have a subpar experience because to IIS made a poor design decision.

Well to answer Kaveesh question, no i have not.
But I would like to find a way to just find the Sites and AppPools in the IIS without having to use the ServerManager object since you need to be admin to do the connection.
Unfortunaly, Phil, just retrieving data from that object requires Admin...

So firstly I'm looking for another way to solve it.
If not I might have to look in to doing something like u say.
