Hi All
This is a simply question but want to know what is the best method.
Currently end users in the organisation cannot install software or updates on their machines. Currently prompts to ender local admin credentials.
CTO has asked us to change the default policy or AD to allow users to install software (I know not the best but he wants it to happen).
So the standard default user should be able to install applications and updates on their local pc. Nothing more.
Should this be done via editing the default Group policy or Active Directory (assign poweruser rights?) and if so what needs to be done?
Many Thanks

There are some ways to do this via GPO, but you shouldn't do them as most of these methods provide local admin rights to users.

Why not invest in a tool that can handle application packaging, deployment and software update deployment which would make your life easier. I understand that not all organizations can afford for expensive tool, but there are some tools that are comparatively cheaper and efficient for doing these tasks.
