    Software Distribution + LDMS9 + Windows 7 + UAC

    Apprentice

      Okay,

       

      I'm just about to the point in my Provisioning building for Windows 7 where I need to begin Software Distribtion. In our environment we WILL be utilizing UAC. With this will come several challenges I can only imagine. Right now I'm looking for some advice for those of you who have done Software Distribution in a UAC enabled Windows 7 environment. How has it worked out for you and what have you had to do? I'm hoping I'm not the only person out there that has this challenge.

          If you are running the task as localsystem it shouldn't be an issue.  Do you have packages that can't be installed as localsystem?

            I have not yet tested this I'm just looking forward a bit. Does it matter that I use batch files?

             

            Once I complete the rebuilding of Provisioning for XP in LDMS9 I will start the Windows 7 software testing. If it's as easy as you say, I should be all smiles.

             

            I guess the reason I had asked about this was back a few months ago when I was testing Windows 7 I was having some trouble with the LANDesk Agent getting install onto a device that was using UAC. If I recall, I had to modify the GPO settings for UAC.
