Install software without admin rights from SCCM RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are deploying windows 7 and are trying to find the best way to allow users to install supported applications without having admin rights on their PCs and without having to call the helpdesk every time they need to do that. I know I can use software distribution in SCCM to create advertisements that they can install without having local admin rights by going to control panel -> run advertised programs, but does anyone know if there is a way to create a simple webpage with hyperlinks that will link to packages available from SCCM, rather than to have the users go to the control panel? Is there a better way to do this that I am not considering? I am looking for the simplest solution possible because most of the users doing this will be sales people... Thanks in advance!

  • There is nothing built in, but there are a variety of third party tools and one from Microsoft that is part of Service Manager. Third-party tools include ones from 1E and SCCMExperts. I think Ron Crumbaker's Web Tools (which are free) has a very simple one also.
