Ok, I have tried to reproduce this, and *now* I'm faulting you :-)
I thought that there was a special "restricted user" with less-than-
reasonable permissions. I usually have XP Pro in a domain only, so I
don't get to see this user interface. I have tried this out, and found
that a "restricted account" is just one where the user belongs to
the "Users" group (instead of belonging to the "Power Users" group).
Such a user can, by default, write to its own registry, and install
the MSI as planned (i.e. Privileged is false). Closing #1004837.
