Allow Domain Users to Install Software locally on their computers
On a Windows 2008 R2 server I would like to allow users to be able to Install Software locally on their computers, by using a GPO Policy.
I have tried creating a GPO called "Local Admin Rights" and linking this to the OU which contains the machines. The settings are:
Computer Config>Policies>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Restricted Groups
Group Name: Domain\Local Admin Rights
This group is a member of: Administrators (I added builtin\administrators but when you go back into the GPO it only shows Administrators)
I have also added the Group "Local Admin Rights" to the users but this is not working. users still cannot install software locally. I am wondering if there may be another setting somewhere that I am missing?
