Allow domain user to install software on machine

Hi,

We have a web designer who needs to be able to install software and updates on her own machine. She is an admin on the machine and we thought adding her to the power users group would do the trick but it didn't help. The box is Server 2003 and the machine is w7.

What can we do to resolve this without giving her full admin rights?

Thanks.

lt should not be left out that non-admins may indeed install gpo assigned msi packages on demand.

On a server oS, the user has to be a member of local administrator or possibly a server operator group member.
A web designer does not need as a normal scheme install any software, presumably you mean the person needs rights for IIS to register items possibly adding DLLs/applications.

There are ALWAYS other things the user can do like provide the user with another account that has admin privledges, or event just give the users account admin rights on the server etc...

however based on what the user is trying to accomplish cannot be done natively and requires 3rd party software to accomplish this.

Comes down to a business decision as to what they want to do. Cost/Trust.

Both great options. We will demo the free version of Will's solution and if it works easily $28 would be fine. Otherwise McKnife is correct, one user with a separate login would be ok.

Thanks to both!
