I have searched the forums and help, and have not found a definitive answer to my question.

I am using IS express 2006 with Flex net. I have a couple of questions about flex net and end user privileges.

1. If I create a new installation, is there away to push it out to my users using flexnet?

2. Right now if I create a new install package, our tech people install it on the end user machine. We subscribed to the flexnet service to push out software updates to our end users, but I am wondering since our users do not have admin rights if I have made a costly mistake:

Will my users be able to install updates from flexnet if they do not have admin rights? If not that defeats the purpose of flexnet...for us

I have read about alwaysinstallelevated, but it seems this could be a security risk, and I do not fully understand the concept.

If my install installs dlls to win/sys will admin rights be required to install?

Any help for a newbie is appreciated.

Thank you,

Michael Johnston
