    Enable automatic updates for non-administrator accounts?

    the Runt

      Hi,

       

      Does anyone know what permissions or access needs to be granted to let the automatic updater work for ordinary user accounts (primarily on windows xp)?

      At the moment with Reader 9.3 only users logged on as an administrator can choose an automatic update option, for ordinary users, which is most of the machines here, it is greyed out and set to "Do not download or install updates automatically".  It would be ideal if Reader could update itself when being run by an ordinary user account as these machines hardly ever get logged on with administrator accounts, and even then it is unlikely Reader would be run.

       

      Thanks for any suggestions,

      Regards. Bryce.S.
