Installing WebEx plugin without UAC admin rights RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    we have several users that have been encourage to use WebEx for meetings. None of our users have local admin rights. 

    When the user tries to use WebEx to schedule a meeting, a plugin is required and UAC prompts for admin access to allow plugin to be installed.

    Can this be bypassed for users using a Group Policy  at all? Would like to turn off UAC for WebEx if possible.

    Any suggestions please?

    Thanks

    Alan

  • Probably, script the installation and deploy via SCCM/GPO

  • Thanks for your replies. I'm looking at Tony Tao's link as there are quite a few suggestions about having Java running. Investigating getting Java upgraded on our devices anyway. Thanks.
