Hi msnetsol,

The user needs to be an administrator on the PC. On the PC, log in as an administrator, and right click on My Computer and choose Manage. Then go to Local Users and Groups, then in Groups double click on Administrators. Click Add and type the name of the person who needs to install software. If you want to make everyone an administrator on this PC, rather than typing the user name, type Domain Users.

Cheers,
Daniel
