Application privileges

Last Modified: 2012-07-11
We have a client with with a custom client/server application running from a mid of XP Pro and Win7 Pro machines and two win2008 machines. One is a sbs2008 and the other is a win2008 r2. The custom app server portion is running on the win2008 r2 box

Occasionally, the custom app needs to install updates to all the clients. Right now these updates cannot be executed by the client PCs, as the logged in users do not have admin rights.

Is there a way that I can be give the specific client application privileges to update itself? Or is there a better way to accomplish this? Right now we are having to login to each PC as a user with domain admin rights.

thanks much in advance for your help!
