  • Hi Shashank,
    As far as i know, standard users can’t install software  by default. You could find the software installation directory, give only administrators permissions to these folders and remove users or everyone from the security tab of these folders.
    And in the group policy, you could have a try Always install with elevated privileges policy under User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer, please see:https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms813108.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
    Best regards,
