I don't understand what allusers=1 can do for me. My understanding is it
will give elevated privileges and do a per machine install.

I am installing a program that installs to HKLM. The startup files go to the
all users, not to the current user. The users need admin rights to do the
install. They are power users but get admin rights through SMS.

With that in mind, do I need to call allusers=1 in my .msi?

That property doesn't give elevated privileges, just whether the install is
per-machine or per-user. If you spell it allusers it won't work. It's
case-sensitive and it's ALLUSERS.
