Office 2010 from CIFS Share

i have a problem with my windows bundle.
I made a .msp-file with OCT and copied all files to a CIFS share (OES3 SP2 server).
Users with local admin rights have no problems but our student with power user rights cannot execute the setup.exe (UNC or S:\Office2010\... makes no difference).
"Secure system user" and also "dynamic admin" can not access the CIFS share.
Any idea or questions are very welcome!

This isn't a question that is specifically relegated to ZENworks 11.

We've been fighting the battle of how to handle installs of applications stored on a network share for years (even back to the days of ZENworks 7).

If you do some poking around, you'll find a couple of threads that will help you make the decision about how to deploy your apps.

I'll tell you this - Mapping a drive through a batch script during an install can be problematic, and the route we have chosen is to copy the installer down to the hard drive of the workstation first before executing it as a system/dynamic admin user.

Also, your mileage may vary as far as a power user being able to install an app, some will require full administrative privileges if they check for the current user to be a member of the "Administrators" group.

Best of luck!
