does anyone know whether changes to a users access level from Power user to user ++ will effect their installation capabilities. Long story short, within my environment Power Users are able to install .msi's with no problem. We are going through an image upgrade and the users rights will now be User++. If I try to install an .msi I get permission errors that I did not see prior. Any feedback willbe greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not familiar with "user ++", but by microsoft's design, any account with privledges below power user should not be able to install software.

Have you looked into setting the AlwaysInstallElevated reg key?

Thanks, I did some research and found that the user level (USER++) will not have that key available until the user has been installed into a specific group. This has something to do with AD I don't want to misquote anything but that is it in a nutshell.
Looking throught gpedit.msc had shown that Power User and User ++ have the same privleges. Within the registry however the key is not available.
