Need to deploy an application which needs admin rights to standard users
Junior SCCM admin here :-) So, i'm working at a collega and i manage all the Windows systems with SCCM. I'm a bit frustrated now: i need to deploy a simple Samsung Portable SSD tool to decrypt the student's Samsung Portable SSD disk. No problem packaging it, but the problem is that the application needs elevated permissions. But our student accounts (AD) are standard users. I already edited the MSI with Installshield and set "Requires admin permissions" to No. But this doesn't help obviously, since this only affects the installer.
How can i best solve this matter? Thanks so much.

ProcMon (are you there Ian? :-) ) in this case is your best friend. Install the application, Start ProcMon as an Admin then start the application and monitor where it is accessing that need admin rights... If you are really unlucky then you may never get it to work under normal user permissions....
