AD Group Policy software restrictions but need to install software in user profile
Posted on 2013-11-12
I had a question come up from a technician here that is having a problem with some installations that he needs to install remotely. We have an AD in place where the Group Policy is set to software installation restricted. What he has been doing is creating an OU without that restriction and moving the users effected to that "temp" OU then install while logged in as them. He told me this software needs to be loaded while in the user profile in order to work within their account. It is time consuming and disruptive since we are using VNC to remote log in to these places across the state. Is there anyway to install software at the user level, while logged in remotely as the user, install, without going the route of getting into the server, and moving users into a different OU?
Thanks for any help.
