Annoying policy issue…

Okay. Here is the story. I have an OU set up called Staff Members. I have a policy set up within the Staff Members OU called Staff Members Policy. Within the policy I have deleted the Windows 2000 adm files and replaced them with the Windows XP adm files. By the way, we're running 2000 Advanced Server. The problem is, if I leave the policy un-edited or don't even include a policy, the staff members are unable to install any software on their computer. I want the staff members to be able to install software. Anything they want to. Please help me...

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The ability to install software is controlled by permissions on the workstations. Most applications will require administrative privledges to install applications. This can be circumvented by using tools or services (SMS for example) to perform software installation on the users’ behalf.

    of course the cheap and nasty way is to make the users a member of the power users group and then lock them down in other areas with group policy. cheers
