  1. change user /query provides the current mode state.
  2. when the machine reboots it resets to execute mode.
  3. install mode facilitates the capture of user application settings (registry etc..) during the install and apply’s them to multi-user  sessions in execute mode.
  4. Applications like Antivirus, VDA, PVS Target device etc… do not require install mode.
  5. General rule, use install mode for all the applications that you intended to publish.
