I have a problem when I try to install certain pieces of software. For example, Learnkey Training. When I do i get an error stating that I do not have administrative privileges, yet I can do just about anything you can imagine on my computer, the only thing I can't do is install certain pieces of software, and it's not ALL pieces of software.
"To install this program requires Administrative Privileges, which you do not have."
I know it has something to do with my account. We run MS Active Directory. When I log into any machine in our building using my credentials I get this error message trying to install Learnkey Training Software. When I log in with any other user (except, ironically, the other IT Branch Tech) it installs without a problem. It's something that only me and the other branch tech are limited by.
I've spoken with our Domain Administrator who swears I'm in all the same administrative containers as everybody else.
I am a member of the following groups:
Another normal user (who does not have the administrative rights problem) on our network is a member of:
So why, would I be restricted from installing certain pieces of software? I, and one other branch tech are the only ones we know of with this problem.
Like I say, probably 89% of all software applications install just fine, so there must be certain pieces of software that are somehow programmed differently and check some other method. And somehow I and only one other Branch Tech have this issue, whereas normal every day users do not.
Any suggestions would be great, thanks!
