UAC & Java Updates

Hi

Currently our users are setup as ordinary users - no local admin access.
However certain things such as Java updates require a UAC admin password
Others include Adobe updates etc. (windows 7)

Is there a simple way of allowing Java updates without UAC,
I've read about Microsoft’s Application Compatibility Toolkit but wondered if there was anything else.

Thanks

i understand that you haven't domain?
You can try add users to Power Users group as 2Cs said, but in my opinion one per month you can run vb script (of course you must prepare it) and update application or you can use psexec to run application update remote.

AppCompat gives you the ability to force or suppress UAC prompts, but it can't give admin rights to a single process.

You can use the Free Privilege Authority tool to give the java update process admin rights.  Turns out that you also have to use AppCompat to indicate it is Windows 2000 compatible - but you can do that through the registry without using the full AppCompat toolkit.

This is all detailed on this thread on the Privilege Authority forums: http://privilegeforum.scriptlogic.com/Forum/aff/3/aft/193/afv/topic.aspx

ou can try add users to Power Users group

in Windows 7 the 'power users group' is simply a standard user, it was only added for compatibility reasons, it does nothing.source
