Have you tried Distribution Package | Accounts | Current user's account. If the user has permissions to install applications this should work.
Yes my packages are all set as you suggested. That is a new feature in 8.8 and the first thing I tried.
I have had a look at StartUserAs.exe, but to be honest, seeing as how 8.8 provides that Current User feature mentioned above by zman, I had hoped I wouldn't have to go down that route.
This is so typical of Landesk to provide a feature that doesn't work properly. They introduce new features with a new release, and then fix more bugs than Microsoft in their first Service Pack. Drives me mad.
But I will do that instead then. Was just checking that there wasn't something I was missing, a box I should check which I haven't.
I have not tested the new feature in 8.8 but will. As Axel has stated using startasuser is an option but should not be necessary. If it works then there is a bug, if it does not work there may be something screwy with the MSI. So is the distro package running just the straight MSI? The reason I ask is that sometimes people use wrappers for MSIs.
