user needs to install software - RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    Just trying to get WSS running on a winXP sp3 machine in combination with kiosk mode.  However, our user must have the ability to install software during their session.  If we add the user to the administrators group the user automatically gets the ability to commit changes made during the session; this of course is not good.

    Is there any way we can add the user to the admin group but still retain the restrictions not able to commit changes.

  • I suggest you add the user to Power Users group as Power User can install most programs meanwhile, it does not show the message promting commit or remove the changes as administrator does.
