option --user-install of MiKTeX setup utility is ignored #19

we deploy MiKTeX for all user via the setup utility using (... is an appropriate path)
"...\miktexsetup.exe" install
--common-roots="H:\LaTeX\packages etc\texmf"
--user-roots="\LaTeX\packages etc\texmf"

The installation works very well, except that the --user-install option is ignored.
No corresponding registry key is created and Settings shows that ="\MiKTeX\2.9" is used instead (probably an internal standard?).
We also tried separating the Install and Config folders but without success.
