there is. most applications want local administrator rights ust because the need to have full control on the files in their \program files\application folder.

JonIU17 is right about the administrator account issue. this will solve the printer problem.

to make sure your applications work while users are member of the "users" group, simply edit the ntfs file permissions and grant the group "users" full control of the application installation folder. dont forget to reset child object with same permissions.

after that open the registry editor and go to the HKLM\Software. find the registry folders / kyes for the application and edit those permissions aswell for the users group.

9 out of 10 times this will be your solution.

As long as the user logging in is not a print operator or an administrator, they will not.  This is standard behavior if they are at least a print operator.
