    Admin rights needed for Fireworks8

    AJUH
      I understand from notes on AppDeploy that Fireworks8 needs users to have admin rights to some files/folders/Registry entries. I work in an environment where our users do not have such rights. I distribute applications using msi application objects via Novell Zenworks7. Whilst the install is fine users cannot run the application because of these rights issues. Any ideas on how I can distirbute the required rights? I'm looking at xcacls.exe and setacl.exe but not sure just how to use them.

          I've never had to have Admin rights on any of the computers I've used
          Fireworks on.

            Is this a school lab setup?

            We used to deliver pc admin rights through Zenworks by user and specific
            IP address. It meant that the students had assigned seats but, at least
            they could use it. If I remember, Power User was enough security.

            It's been three years since then and it was Zen3 so, the exact details
            are foggy. Hopefully something I have said will help you. :)
