How do I allow users without administrator privileges install fonts?

I need allow users to install fonts without administrator privileges.  Googling landed a few eccentric tools, but this isn't an option... I can change the entries in registry, file & directory permissions, use Windows commands in batch scripts, etc. but I can not use any third-party downloads.  In addition, just save them to the police for the session cache is not enough... they should be able to install fonts in C:\Windows\Fonts directory.  It's OK, if they can not uninstall a font, allowing that could remove a font that Windows requires.

  • Running forms of the PC client without administrator privileges on Windows 7

    As company policy is aimed at users have locked down PCs without administrator privileges on Windows 7, we met with a number of problems we couldn't solve completely.

    The only way we found to date that worked (sort of) was at the first mark the administrator user, connect to the Weblogic Server to run applications compiled for the first time and accept certificates and jar files downloaded and revoke admin rights after that.

    No one has found another way to make this work?

    This should not be the case.  Like you, I work in an environment where standard users are not granted administrative privileges to their workstations and we did not have this problem.  We did something different - that I am aware of the - client side to allow the download.  JAR files are stored in the Java Cache Directory which should be open to all users.  Could your administrators have changed the privileges to this directory?

  • Beta 5 of Firefox does not check the updates from an account without administrator privileges and won't ask administrator privileges apply downloaded update

    I can't get Firefox Beta 5 to check the updates using an account without administrator privileges. Beta version of Firefox 5 downloaded an update (from 2 Beta Beta 3), and now, there's a button apply update in the Firefox window that won't hurt, even though the update is properly applied from another account with administrator privileges.

    I use Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. In general, I use Firefox for an account without administrator privileges and provide the only administrator credentials when you are prompted to install or remove software.

    Delete the files in the folder updates\0 and updates.

    You may need to remove active - update.xml and updates.xml so, if it is present.

  • How to get back to the user account administrator privileges?

    Original title: lost the privileges on the computer at home. How ca I get it back?

    I am the only user on my home computer, using Windows 7 Professional. When you turn on the computer, always offered welcome my administrator screen and waited for a response and normal user accounts before continuing. Rarely need to log on as an administrator and have to go back to the computer just to press a button before it continued its long initialization has been frustrating. Want to remove the log on option user I did it via the Control Panel [don't know how, now!] so now I can turn it on and let it start in his own good time without further interaction from me, which is great.

    What is not big, is that I lost all administrator privileges, then any time the area UAC appears asking if I want to continue with the program and I need to answer YES, it won't let me as the Yes box is grayed out.

    The management of the computer control panel, I can get local users where I can see that my backup Administrator account is disabled. If I click on the box to reactivate the account, access is denied, so I can not turn on the account.

    Help, please!  I would really think my administrator account to return once again, without having to turn off every time.

    Thank you for your expertise in advance.


    Here you go:

    1. Set your BIOS so that it uses the DVD drive as its primary boot device.
    2. Start the computer with your Windows 7 repair CD.
    3. Press a key when prompted to boot from the DVD.
    4. Select 'PC Repair' in the menu.
    5. Select 'Repair' when prompted.
    6. When you are prompted, select System Restore.
    7. Configure Windows to a point before you made the change.
    8. Plan ahead a little and create, test and document an alternative admin account, same as you have a spare emergency House key. This will save you a lot of trouble.
  • Windows 8 without administrator privileges

    I did a stupid thing (I think)

    I wanted to get rid of the connection whenever I launched windows 8
    I followed the instructions and the PC started very well without connection, unfortunately the I used because the connection does not account/user administrator privileges, at least I think that's what happened.
    The result is that I can now none liked install/uninstall/change programs, items or laptop settings. Whenever I'm trying to reset or alter anything UAC wants the "Yes" box ticking, but it is grayed (because I don't have administrator privileges)
    Tried to update it's just the same thing!
    I liked windows 8, but I quickly fell out of love with her!

    Thanks for the reply

    2 Internet instructions
    3. Yes, the problem occurred after you follow the instructions.

  • Smartphones from blackBerry Desktop Manager does not recognize the device without administrator privileges

    Hello. My "BOLD" BB works fine at home with 4.6 DM. However, at work DM detects that the device is plugged when I get with administrative privileges (Windows XP Pro, SP2). When I am denied the additional privileges DM cannot detect the BB.

    DM has been intalled under administrator privileges, but I'm not allowed with this privilege permanently.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    It seems that when DM has been installed, it has not been installed "for all users".  Maybe uninstall and when it is reinstalled, make sure that the option "for all users" is checked (insteald "only for this user").

  • How do you support users without having them reveal their password

    I'm in the desk stand in great company. The head of our Department of COMPUTER security has recently published an email, across the enterprise, reminding the user is to never give their password for SOME reason any. It has not yet, but may impede our ability to help users. There are some situations where it is necessary to have a user login information. Speaking with our Department of COMPUTER security, they will not move on this issue. They want us to find ways around a user reveal their password for us even if it means that it will take twice as long to solve the problem.

    What is considered a best practice security for office support. How do other companies support their users without having them never reveal their password?

  • How can I allow users of CS update metadata on several items? (gR 10, 3 of the Complutense University of MADRID)

    In the 10gR 3 AAU portal user interface:

    It is convenient to allow us users to update fields of metadata on a group of items in a single action. We want to allow users to select any number of files of results of a search of CS.

    After selecting the items, we want users to be able to define new values for some fields (for example the security group and the Document Type) without touching the values of other fields of metadata (such as author).

    This seems to be a pretty basic feature, but we can't seem to find in the user interface of CS. What is the best way to do this in the user interface of CS?

    Thank you!


    There is a custom component, component MassMetaData, which can be used for this specific feature. I've seen some users use it to update metadata on several items in one fell swoop.
    Maybe some of the consultants can be contacted to get their hands on this component.

    Thank you
