Another Way for Clean Access Agent Installation

Is there another way to install the Clean Access Agent without having Administrator privilleges? Coz, there's policy stated that any users on our company can't have administrator privillege.


Re: Another Way for Clean Access Agent Installation

The Secure Desktop tries different methods to install itself on Windows client computers until it finds a method that works. The installation is automatic and transparent to the user, however, one of the methods must be available on the client and the user must have privileges to use that method. The installation methods and associated user requirements are as follows:

CSD Installation Method Client User Requirement

ActiveX - Administrator privileges

Microsoft JVM- Power-user privileges

Sun JVM- Any user

Exe- Any user with execution permissions.For more refer the following URL


Re: Another Way for Clean Access Agent Installation

Hello Ronald,

How do you distribute software/patches currently? I am guessing you have a software distribution application like Altiris, Bigfix, SMS or some other software similar like this which can uses escalated priviliges to install software. You can distrubute the CCA agent in similar manner. You will need to first use a test pc to download the agent via the web login method. And then you can use this downloaded file to be distributed using one of the softwares above.

Please let me know if this helps.
