Hi All

We have a piece of software for our garage that requires updates for its database to be downloaded and installed afterhours.  The garage personnel have a local account they use to logon to the laptop.  Is it possible to setup this download to occur without the user having to be a local admin on the machine?  The laptop is a Panasonic Toughbook with Windows 7 pro installed.  It is a standalone machine with a local account login.

Thanks

Hi.

Windows has a task scheduler. It can do whatever you like, whenever you like it and also run as high-privileged user. To download something, you could obtain and use wget.exe, it works command based and can be used with scheduler.
