Most likely you've neglected to give them adequate permissions over their local workstations.  

I'd suggest you add their domain accounts to one of the privileged local account groups on their workstations.  


Depending on your security settings on the workstations, this may mean "Local Administrators" or "Local Power Users".

Open the Computer Management Control Panel on the WORKSTATION.  Choose Local Users and Groups and then GROUPS.

Choose "Administrators" or "Power Users" and then "Add to Group".  Be sure you choose users from the DOMAIN and not the local account database.

BTW, If you don't have a copy of the NT SERVER Resource Kit, I'd suggest you get a copy.  There is a wealth of information and procedures to help you through all this.  There is also a CD full of handy utilities.

Sorry, I mean W2K Server Reskit, not the NT Server Reskit.  Same idea, different server.

-I think a simple way to do this is to add domain users to local administrators on the workstations..
-From a Pro workstation which you are logged into as a domain administrator for the domain, open up computer management from administrative tools.
-Right click on computer management(local)& choose connect to another computer.
-Connect to another workstation & open up "local users & groups". Open groups & double click on administrators.
-Click on add. from "LOOK IN" choose the domain & not the local station.
-Add domain users from the domain to the administrators group.
-Have a user log off & log back in... test the software install.

you can do those things:
1) put them on there own computer in the:
 Local Administrators or Local Power Users Group.
2) when they want to run a setup you can go to there computer and hold the "SHIFT" key and then press right click on the mouse and choose the "Run As" then you can set your own user and password
hope that help.
