I have a batch file that is run via SMS. The SMS package contains a program that runs the batch file with 'user's rights and only when user logged in.' The installation will run perfectly if the user logged in is a local administrator to the workstation. If the user does not have administrator rights, an error message is displayed saying 'administrator rights are needed.' If I change the program and have it run with 'administrative rights' setup.exe begins to run which then starts javaw.exe but then the installation stops. I would like to be able to run the SMS package/program whether there is a user logged in or an administrator.

The batch file is:
copy %0\..\clientadmin.rsp %windir%\Temp
%0\..\setup -responseFile %windir%\Temp\clientadmin.rsp -silent

Any help would be appreciated.

As far as I remember Oracle does need to be installed with admin rights so you do need to elevate the privileges.

Now as javaw is starting I would suggest you need to look at the response file to see if something is amiss. Do you have it set for totally silent? Take that off and watch the process run through.

Oracle is a pig to install at the best of times so good luck.
