- Basically there are several ways for this to happen. You are correct in "a user does need administrative rights" to install the Office product. You will need to login Locally to install Office, Assign or Publish the Office application to the user or computer(GPO), or use SMS or some other Admin tool to 'push' the application.
- So as long as the original installation is performed with elevated privileges all subsequent installations including install on demand will install with these elevated privileges.
Hope this helps.
