iPrint and Power Users

Greetings,
We are in the process of testing the distribution of the iPrint client and we are finding that we cannot install the client as a Power user on either Windows 2000, or XP . It seems to install fine as an Administrator. We have tried the 4.16 client, and the 4.20 client versions and they do the same thing, giving us the message that 'You do not have sufficient rights, etc.' in the middle of the install. We have tried installing it directly from nipp.exe, nipp_s.exe, and from the http://server/ipp page, and even set up simple app in Zenworks 6.5 to deliver it to the desktop, and nothing works when installing as a Power user. Anybody know what we might be missing? It seems to me that this is something that should be possible by default.

Re: iPrint and Power Users

Installing the client has nothing to do with iPrint. Issue here is if the
iPrint client does not have a footprint on the machine, how can we take
control and allow an install?? Once the iPrint client is there, you can
install printers without having rights, because we have a footprint on the
machine and allow rights "under the covers". It is supprising that ZEN
doesn't allow the install.. I would think that if ZEN is in the picture,
you would be afforded the same "under the covers" rights to install apps...

Re: iPrint and Power Users

If you have ZENworks, you should configure an application to install the
iPrint client with system rights. Like iprintrox says, iPrint can control
the installation of drivers, but installing the iPrint client itself
requires admin rights.

Re: iPrint and Power Users

We are running Zen 6.5, and tried setting up the simple app with secure, and unsecure system user, and they both just error'ed out saying it could not get needed resources, but when we ran it Normal, it at least started, then finally said we don't have rights. It finally dawned on me to look at the IPrint policy in the user Policy packages we have for our users.
I set up the IPrint policy, and pointed it at the nipp-s.exe. I was then able to force out the client to a user's PC that was associated with the policy as a Power user. I didn't see this in the IPrint docs, and it would have saved a lot of time, had it been there.
