This is a group policy question for Windows.
I have developed an Outlook add-in using VSTO 4.0 in VS 2010. I currently have the issue whereby the add-in can only be installed on a per user basis as Office reads from the CURRENT_USER registry to decide which add-ins to load when Outlook starts. This is fine if Group policy allows installation on a per user basis. I have read up a little on group policy, which I am not too familiar with, and it looks like MSI installs can indeed be distributed on a user OR machine basis.
My question is, does the user still need to have local administrative privileges to write the files to the 'Program Files' directory, or does group policy look after this, and allow the installion to take place regardless? Unfortunately we are in a Linux environment and this is very difficult for me to test.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
