    I need to give some users the right to install progrmas over there xp machines.
    I dont want to give them administrative privillage, the only needed is install programs right.

    Re: install program right

    Is the software deployment method going to utilize published or advertised software installations via Active Directory GPO, or do you want users do launch a software installation themselves from a network drive or network share?

    I want to say that using published/advertised packages via GPO allows the software to be installed with elevated privileges which would meet your needs, but I can't guarantee that 100% as I don't publish apps via GPO so I'm a bit rusty in that area. The following links should be helpful:

    As far as the latter method, you will definitely need to find a way to install the applications with elevated privileges. We normally do this with 3rd party software deployment utilities such as Altiris (or whatever - SMS, WinInstall, etc.). RunAs wouldn't be a good candidate here because giving an end user the correct RunAs command would also give them (in plain text) an elevated account and password in the process!

      actually ,in my situation I have a group of trainees that they have to install there own softwares on certain computers, so I need to give them this right without any administrative privillage.
