User rights

By Borg7of9 ·
WHen I set up a user, he does not have admin priveleges, so I have to run as admin to install programs. However, some programs will not install only under admin account and not all users on that workstation. EVen if I logon as that user, and then execute the program using run as, I have the same problem.

If you still have that problem even using run as, the easiest solution is probably just to give the user admin rights, install the software, then take the admin rights away.

for these programs, the desired users gotta have some kind of local account cuz the programs don't have a clue about domain accounts.
does the user have local admin rights? or power user rights as suggested.
also imhe i've fixed this by using regedt32 and checking permissions on registry entries for the programs that won't run. might need to check folder pernmissions too but for me it's always the registry entries.
as you know, when programs install only in the profile you used to install the program then that your tip off they ain't 'nt aware' as we used to say...
it's always permissions because program doesn't know what to do about them properly.
as for getting them into the profile you want, after i get 'em working in the profile i want, i just cheat and manually create the shortcut on the desktop or drag the shortcuts/start menu items from one profile to the other. some admins temporarily grant admin rights to user then take em back down to power user after install. if you choose this method may offer 2 cents more and suggest you make a different desktop background for admin account that really shouts out: this here account is logged in as admin!
some admins get around this whole thing by putting their users in domain global user group then adding that to local admin or maybe power users group. that is cracking things pretty wide open but stuff just works then.
