Can we tell which users have installed which things?

In Windows 2012 server, can we tell, from the event logs or other means, which users have installed which things? If not, is there something we could do to provide that information in the future?¿

David that may not be the solution. they may need admin access to administer the network etc and then he might be trying to just see if they are installing unauthorised software.

Do you mean can you track them if they are installing software on the server or on just a regular workstation on the network.?

put the users as standard users, problem solved.

If one knows the day (or can guess), they can scroll through event viewer and look at the installation events. Event viewer shows usernames for each event. This is just a theory. I have used it to find out who did an installation, but I did notice what I described here.
