  • Software Install for Non admins

    Hi All

    Here is one that google once again cant answer for me, I have a group of users with their own GPO and monthly they receive a CD from the same vender which has updated advice stuff on it.

    How do I allow only this group to install only this software? or install anything just for this group?

    Does the CD allow for a network install or "run from network share"?
    If so, copy to LAN and restrict permissions to the group only

      Hi,

      Have you deployed the existing software via GPO?
      If so you could do the same with the upgrade if it comes as an MSI and use the Upgrade tab in the properties of the Software installation policy.

          Ok this software comes from Citizens Advice Bureau. It has an MSI installer so I guess I will put this in the read only app folder like my other applications and allow them to install "publish mode"..

          going to test this right now
