Brand new laptop and only two users set up (administrator - local computer and end user - domain). Gave end user "administrator" previledges but when user tries to install software they receive the following error "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation". End user can right click on installable program and "run as administrator" and it works, but doesn't work if user tries the install as their profile. We have googled this error and referenced most suggested fixes, local policy setting, but in the registery - HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer doesn't exist so can't set the "DISABLEMSI". We don't believe either that there are any GPO dictating any local policies, as we have other units running Windows 7 with the same set ups and their don't receive the error when installing programs. Not sure what else to do to fix this issue so that the end user can install programs on their laptop. Please any suggestions would greatly be appreciated!!
