What Group Policy settings have to be applied so that users are able to install software on their workstations without having to make them an administrator?

Thanks in Advance!

What operating system are you using? Windows NT or Windows 2000? I assume it's Win2k. The only two ways (that I know) is to either make the user a local Administrator (on their PCs)or wrap up the installation in an MSI file. This allows the installation to run under different privileges.
Software like Installshield will allow you to create MSI files.

I needed specific permissions within group policy user and computer settings.

Thanks though...

If they have a CD to install the program from, they can go to "My Computer" and navigate to the setup executable to install. This would mean that they would need access to "My Computer." Some old programs require that they have access to the DOS prompt and the run command. Depending on the program, you may want to give them access to the "Add/Remove Programs" applet in Contol Panel. I would assume that they could logon to their workstation locally as mentioned before.

Hope this helps.
