Microsoft Live Meeting 2007 will only install for user logged in during installation.

Recently it has come to my attention that MS Live Meeting will only install for the user logged in at the time of the installation. This kind of puts a kink in certain machines that are used by more than one user. I do not want to use a generic username because of the security risk. I have been doing some research on MSIEXEC to see if it is possible to override the installation so that it can be used for all local users of the machine. This has not turned out well as there does not seem to be an option for it. All you get is "advertise" which I assure you is not the same thing. What can be done? I am thinking maybe a GPO that installs for each USER logged in instead of COMPUTER.

Thoughts?

Live meeting for some reason will not install for all users UNLESS you are logged on as a local administrator. I have tested this and seems to be completely true. According to the Doc above you can still install but with limited functionality. This is why builds that are done with MDT do not have this issue because MDT uses a temp admin service account to do all the installs. So FYI for the future log off then back on again as admin to install live meeting

"Deploying the Office Live Meeting Client from Another User Account
To install the meeting client, it is recommended that the user be logged on with an account that is a member of the Administrators group. If the user’s account is not a member of this group, the user can still install the meeting client (that is, perform a user-mode installation). However, be aware that if the user does not have Administrator permissions, the MODI print driver will not install, and the user will not be able to import documents that use the MODI print driver, such as Microsoft Office Word or Microsoft Office Excel. Alternatively, you can install the meeting client by using either Microsoft System Management Server (SMS) or by running Setup as a different user."
