how to give permission to user to run and install application like data card or modem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    when a standard user try to use an Data card (airtel 3G Dongle), windows 7 prompts for a administrator password to run the application.

    I have to go and type admin password each time when that person uses the dongle. Is there any way that  i can give permission for that user account only to run that application without admin password.

    I don't want to add him to administrator group and then it will be a mess.

    please help me out here............

    Thanks in Advance.

  • I would check to see if there is software that can be downloaded to the PC from the manufacturer. I am assuming your device is a "plug and play" device. The manufacturer might still have the device drivers for install on their website.

    Installing the drivers manually should alleviate the problem

    Otherwise, you can make the changes in Group Policy to solve the problem
