Software deloyed with Group Policy won't install if user is a Power User
Posted on 2008-09-30
I'm trying to get a handle on deploying software with group policy to power users. I'm setting up the package, in this case it is the Microsoft 2007 file compatability viewer. It is deploying to the end user fine. What puzzles me is that it won't install, but it creates a folder under "All Programs / MC" and puts a shortcut to the executable in there. Number one, my customers won't ever run the shortcut, and number two, when it is run as a Power User, it doesn't install without admin privileges, which defeats the whole purpose. Please don't tell me that my end users need to be admins to get GP software pushes. Not happening. Thanks.
