    Software install

    Locked

    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
