Allow non admin users to install applications from a certain path
We have some applications that have been produced in house. We have an Intranet page with links to the setup.exe’s for these applications where our users can install them if and when they need them.
In Windows XP our users were allowed to install these applications themselves. In Windows 7 we have removed this as we do not want them to be administrator’s on their local computer.
However, this has caused a problem as we would like to allow them to install certain applications without having to running them as an administrator each time. We also don’t want to push them by GPO or install them on an image as we want people to keep installing them if and when they need them.
How can we allow our users to install these applications from specific local paths, without giving them admin permissions?
