Ive been looking absolutely everywhere for this answer but cant find it, microsoft site doesnt cover it either.
I need to deploy a new version of IE6 to around 100 computers using ieak6.
Ive made the package, and it works fine, I can run it, it runs silently it restarts the machine - all done.
Ive put this on a network drive then want to send around a mail telling the users to run it when convenient, the trouble is, it says they need local admin rights to run it.
Ive ticked the option for URD which means an admin doesnt have to log on after its installed and restarts, but can find anything about BEFORE the restart, just running the file. I have set permission for anyone to run the file, its just they dont have admin rights to install anything locally.

Ive tried using runas as a batch file, but that only stores my user credentials on windows xp pro machines, which isnt used by the users. It prompts for a password otherwise.

I cant give everyone admin rights, so any ideas how I get it to install on everyones PC's?

Thanks in advance.

I guess you don't have any management software installed (SMS, Tivoli, Group Policy, etc.) or you wouldn't be asking this...

You can also make use of the Windows scheduler service by specifying an administrative account for this service and then scheduing the execution of the installation (but you would not be able to have the users trigger it).

I know alot of people use the ScriptPackager feature of the Admin Script Editor for this type of thing. It does what you aree asking without forcing you to make your password available: http://www.adminscripteditor.com/editor/scriptpackager
