Locked

User Rights in NT

By test_account02 ·
Hi,

I want to be able to install programs/software etc... when log in as myself. I do not have sufficient rights to install, which is understandable because I am NOT a member of "administrator". I DO NOT want to add myself as a member of the administrator group, what service under User rights can I add myself to enable me to install software please.

please help.

thank you kindly

User Rights in NT

by Joseph Moore In reply to User Rights in NT

If you are locked out by your administrators from installing software, then it is done for a reason.
I keep my users from doing things like installing software because users ALWAYS mess up their systems when they have power like that!
I know it is not what you want to hear, but I think you should not worry about this. If you illegally get the rights to install software on your system, and your local Admins find out, then they are not gonna be happy. There could be negative reprocussions directed towards you because of this.
Sorry.

You should be able to install most software by making yourself a member of the local power users group. To do this, log in as an admin, go to user manager and from the domain users list, add your username to the power users group. This will be a local account and the extra privileges will not transfer to other workstations or servers.
Good luck!

I do not want to take sides but I think #1 has no intention of offending you. I also think that what he is saying is valid and you as an administrator should know that better. The least you could do is tell him politely that you are the administrator. I hope you will not take offence at what I have said. I have been with TechRepublic for a very long time and I or rather other members of TechRepublic do not appreciate rudeness or sarcastic remarks from its members. Please keep this place a good information portal for all.

Best regards,
Soekratis
