Deploy .OCX control to multiple users

Windows XP
IE 6

I have a web based GIS application that requires an OCX control to view maps through the browser.
Under normal circumstances, a user would browse to the page and would be prompted to download the plug-in.
For some reason with Windows XP you must have Administrator rights to install this plug-in. All our user (1400) do not have Admin rights and it would not be feasible to grant it.
What can I do to allow the users to download this plug-in with user rights. OR how can I deploy and register this control remotely. (I have deployment tools so I just need the process).

Hopefully you'll get help here soon; I'm really busy the next two weeks, so very little time.

Perhaps this is a good resource for starters.

Do you use IEAK to roll out customized version of Browser where you can install the Plugins needed (perhaps)?

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

Windows 2000 Domain/Active directory structure.
We use Script Logic for logon scripting and Altiris for Desktop management.

I am unfamiliar with Altiris for Desktop Management, but have found 3rd party desktop controls to be "of concern".  I am at work, and hope to help you further, though swamped this week.

Ideally, others will step in with insights, though, in the interim.

I've sure hit a ton of dead-ends trying to figure out a solution here, sorry to admit.

Perhaps posting a pointer question in the Windows XP Topic Area will draw some additional insights and help.

Greetings.

Has this information helped you or is more needed?  If no response in the next 7 days, I will request Moderator intervention to finalize this question; Expert input for fair outcome is always appreciated.

If you have special handling needs, such as a request for Refund/PAQ for the Moderators, please post a zero point question, include this question link (URL) in your request in the Community Support topic area below.  If more than one expert helped you resolve this, you can also request a point split by providing Expert name and details.

Thanks in advance for your responsiveness.

I assume you've explored the option to make users part of the Administrator Group and/or continue to hit a dead-end here.  Without your feedback, can't guess at your progress.

This question clearly appears to be abandoned.  Questions without activity by the asker for 21 days or longer are considered abandoned.

For lack of a better idea, will request that a Moderator refund your points and close this item by moving it to our PAQ at zero points.  Hopefully it can help others with similar problems in the future.

Sorry you chose not to finalize or update this question.

One other thought that may help you; consider checking into IEAK to roll out customized Browsers and controls.
