Software install

By ted_pas7 ·
Occaisionally I will login (as administrator for our domain)to a new Win2000 desktop and install/setup new software for the end user. For the most part they have no problem using the software when they login as a user on the pc. Sometimes however once the software is installed and functioning for the 'administrator' a login by the end user will result in a message, 'program did not install completely/correctly' and fail to function for the end user. When I attempt to install the software while logged-in as the end user, I receive a message about 'do not have permission'. Is there a way to give an end user 'administrator rights' during the install, and then return them to their normal rights?

You can create local machine administrators. They will have rights to change, add, or delete files on the local machine only. Go to the start button

Start\settings\control panel\users and passwords\

Advanced Tab
Advance button in the middleof the page

Select the users folder
Select the Action menu item on the top of the page and select New User

Enter the appropriate information for the user and select OK

On the right pane select the new user you just created and right click,selct Properties

Select the Member of Tab
Select the Add button

Add the user to the local Administrators group
