Install apps on Win7-x64 Pro machine without admin privledges
Posted on 2010-08-20
I am upgrading the machines in our small office (4 computers) with Win7-x64 Professional boxes (SBS 2003 Network). When configuring the applications on the machine I need to enter an admin id and password for each and every install.
That in itself does not present a problem if the applications would install for the local user. I found that when i was installing Google Apps Sync that the program would install but only under the administrator and not for the local user (local Outlook Profile). I would have to make the local user an administrator, install the app, and then remove the local user as the administrator to have it load properly.
I am running into the problem again and would like to see what is the best solution for handling this? It seems very inefficient the method I am following.
