How to allow local power users group able to install Java and Flash updates?

Our user computers are all Windows 7 professional under 2008 R2 AD environment. They do not have administrative privilege to install software.

But they need to install Java and Flash Player updates sometimes.
We do not want to publish a new version of the Java/Flash update from our local server every time when it got a new version. And users should able to decide weather they need the update by themselves.

Is it possible to have a solution for this situation?
Thank you.

Given the self-imposed restrictions you have, you'll need to buy software to do this. Something like BeyondTrust can allow users to run elevated permissions but be restricted to specific tasks. There is no good way to do this natively. The power users group is no more, and windows' standard way of handling elevated permissions at that level is basically local admin.

There is a built-in way to do installations on demand. Assign the MSI packages to user objects (as opposed to computer objects). That way, the users can use appwiz.cpl to install the package.
