Dear support,

There are some software installed on client machines (non Microsoft), that required to be installed time to time.  the issue is that this update require admin right, I don't even have MSI package to send to clients.

Under GPO can I use allow certain software to be installed as administrator in clients machine?

If the applications you want to permit them to install isn't too invasive, then you should be able to get away by granting full control on these locations. If they have to install a driver, then you need to grant administrative access.

    %ProgramData%
    %ProgramFiles%
    %ProgramFiles(x86)%
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE
