Hi,
Is it possible to give a specific user permission to install any software or application he wants.
The only way I know this is to give Admin previlages to that user.

if it is possible, where I should do this.
My system is Windows 2000 SBS server.


Thanks

If you need to give a local user administrator privileges then ..
Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Local Users and Groups>Users
now double click the user and select the Member Of tab>select Add
and add the user to the administrators group

Local Users and groups are disabled on server, becasue it is a domain controler.

Once again, I explain, I want to give permission to that users so he can install softwares on his WorkStation.
At presend he can not install anything on his work station.


Thanks

1. Are you looking to allow the user to install applications on the SBS box or on his own client machine?

2. What kind of network do you have Active Directory/NT Domain?

If 1. - if you want this person to have a non admin account with sufficient rights to install software the put his user account in the Server Operators group.

you can also use the command prompt to make an administrative account

D:\>net user admin1 mypass /add
The command completed successfully.
<---creates a username admin1 with the password mypass

D:\>net localgroup administrators admin1 /add
The command completed successfully.
<---adds user admin1 to the administrators group

I also found that if you log on as Admin to the client machine, click Admin Tools > Local Security Policy > Software Restriction Policys > Security Levels.

Then right-click on Unrestricted and enable.

I tried many things to get software to install but once I did the above setting, it worked. I am pretty new to all this tho, but give it a try.
