NO !

just add the user on domain you dont have any need to create users on local machine. Only register domain on local machine.
when local machine required username and password also give that domain.
clear?

I tried doing it that way but it would not let me install any new software on the local machine despite the logged on user having administrator rights assigned on the server.

your domain user will have to be a member of the local admin group in order to install software on a local machine.. there is NO way around this.

on the local computer (your workstation) goto start,run,, then type in mmc to open up the MMC (microsoft management console),, then go to console, choose add/remove snap in and add the local users and groups snap in.. from there choose groups, administrators,, and add your domain user to the local admin group from there.  The reason your domain user couldn't install software on the local machine is b/c that user didn't have rights to that machine,,,when you said the user had rights to the server, that has nothing to do with the client rights.
