Allow standard user (non admin) to update installed softwares

    Question

  • Hi,

    Sorry if this has already been raised but I would like to allow standard user (non admin) to update softwares on the PC such as Adobe Reader, Java, Itunes, etc. However, new software (not installed) must require admin access to install software. 

    I have enabled 'allows user to patch elevated products' but it didn't work. 

    Is this achievable using GPO or something? Any suggestions.

    Regards,

    Mitesh
