Groupwise Software Distribution (SDD)/Windows ADMIN rights

We are trying to use the Groupwise Software Distribution to send out our client updates to Windows XP SP3 workstations.

Those users that DO NOT have ADMINISTRATOR rights never receive a notice to upgrade.

Is there a way to send the updates out to users that do not have ADMINISTRATOR rights ?

As long as the users are able to read the SDD location & client update files it should work for them too.

Have you also set the relevant SDD software path on the PO and made sure the software.inf has a higher build number than currently on the workstations?

And to add to Magic31....

You are lucky you don't get notified, cuz without Admin rights, you
can't upgrade, without running SetupIP with a free 3.Party tool
