Restricting user rights

By kmcleo ·
I have an environment that has remote users running an XP portable and dialing into a W2K network that does not have AD deployed yet.
I have createrd a local group in the image on the clients and allowed them access to install drivers (for adding devices) but need to also allow them to install software without making them admins on the local machines
AN IDEAS OR EXAMPLES????????

I'll add that they can't install or exeute installs of software or patches beacause they are not admins and log in with a restricted profile.....thie fix I am trying to accomplish will be overwriitten with a GPOto be rooled out with AD

add them to POWER USERS GROUP which is built in in the groups,it will give them the power to do so,at the mean time,they are not admins.

Hi,
This is only going to help if the software you want them to install is in MSI format - or you are willing to spend some time packaging the software into an MSI yourself. If so, check out the technet article Q259459 search for it at
microsoft.com/technet

The article details how to allow msi's to always be installed as admins - you can turn this on and off by twaeking a registry key. Hope this helps...
