user logs on because they have no rights to install

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

On our club 25 node network, the adobe reader installs everytime a PDF file
is opened.
This works OK for me with my administrator's rights.

But it hangs when a lab user logs on because they have no rights to install
adobe reader.
How can this be changed?

Which method / procedure is found in XP help to explain how to change the
Adobe reader install from the administrator's rights to also the user
rights?

    Question comes up: why does it get installed over and over again?
    Are there some policies in place that make this happen?
    Installing it once for All Users should be enough.

    According to the article on Adobe site
    (http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/323421.html) that seems to be the way
    they have set this up. Users must be at least Power User to be able to
    install it.

    If you are using XP Home, then there is a little catch in that there does
    not exist a Power Users group on Home, so that leaves only Administrators
    group.

    See if you can find info on how to install Adobe Reader for "All Users".

    hth (a little :-))
