DO NOT FORCE INSTALLER ON TOP!!@#$!@#$!@#$

What the !@#$!@$!@# is wrong with your devs?

NO SOFTWARE IN 2018 should be setting the "Top Window" flag - EVER - !!!!

I ran into an error installing Vault Standard Server - named pipe inaccessible - so I needed to reconfigure SQL Server to ensure named pipes is enabled and installed - BUT I CANNOT SEE ANY OTHER SOFTWARE BECAUSE YOUR INSTALLER IS SO FREAKIN' RUDE it FORCES ITSELF ON TOP OF ALL OTHER WINDOWS.

And in the middle of an install - with a modal dialog displayed by your installer (error in SQL Server - retry / cancel) - I can't even move your software out of the way! The modal dialog can be moved, but not its parent window - your installer - ALL OF WHICH BLOCK ALL OTHER WINDOWS.

Who the goddamn hell thought that was a grand idea?

Who in Two Thousand and Eighteen still thinks ANY WINDOW EVER should set the "Always on Top" flag?!!!@#!@#$

Can that developer immediately!

Hello,

Sorry to hear that you experienced such an inconvenience with the install of your Vault Server. Our developers incorporated this method with the server install a few years back and the change would be cumbersome. I will pass along your frustration to the team.

Thanks,

Tonya
