How can i give a domain user permission to install software he purchased?

I have a user who purchased pdanet and downloaded it to his laptop.  However, when he went to install it, an error message was displayed stating he needed to be an administrator to install the software.

In active directory on the server, i added him as a member of Domain Admin.  He logged on to his laptop.  Then he was able to install the software successfully.  

Is there a level, below domain admin, that will allow users to install software on there computer without having to be an administrator, or should I just leave him as a member of domain admins.

Thank you.
