Preform Updates As Regular Domain User on Windows Vista and 7
Posted on 2014-01-20
Was wondering if anyone could give me some assistance on allowing regular domain users to preform updates to programs on Windows 7 machines, in particular to java and to a program they use called UPS worldship. Both of these programs require admin privileges when updating, the UPS program is particularly annoying because sometimes it will have two to three updates in the space of a day two, resulting in a time consuming support session involving logging into each of the 20 or so computers (and every computer on site runs java) that use the program and running the update. I've read about programs such as ninite that will push out updates for programs but I don't see worldship in its listed supported software, and obviously making everyone local admins is out of the question. Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
