I have a customer that won’t budge on giving either of these rights to agents. Is this only required for install of the software? When I show them the install doc where it says this they want to know the who,what,when, where and why, and just because the doc says isn’t enough. I have seen the other threads and none of them give me answer the customer will be happy with.

In our Organisation none of the CAD/CSD users have local admin rights.  It only becomes a problem when newer versions needs to be installed - They all have to be pushed out instead of being downloaded automatically Wed, 02/24/2010 - 06:14

At my current customer, the automatic update is also turned off on the server. The machines are "user rights" and we use SMS.

We push the CAD Clients Service Release.msi.
