admin rights install

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I had a question. I wanted to install Adobe Photoshop CS on my laptop at work.

I cannot install it If I dont have admin rights though..

Is there a way I can bypass this and get it installed. I ran it by my director and they tell me they dont have a business need to get it installed so they wont purchase a license. I have my own license and would like to use it for some work.

Any ideas if this can be done. I just want a good graphic editor similar to photoshop that I can install and use.

I asked on another forum and they say they wont tell me cuz its bad...bunch of stupid goodie goodies!

Appreciate the help.

Did you explain that you already have a license? If you did and they still said they will not help you do it, then just leave it at that.

Since u have a licence and everything then ims ure they may do this one thing, open ur install cd if u have one(or the folder the installer is in) and right click on the steup.exe file, then select "Run As" then just ask if one of them will type in the administrator password so u can install it and then just run the setup as normal...

If they still wont do it then PM me and we will talk some ways over

It isn't so much about being goodie goodies as trying to keep systems in a known state and being sure they are legal.

You may know your product key is good, but they don't.

And if they start letting everyone install one-off applications, they end up with a support mess and delve a bit deeper into possible legal issues.

thnx for the info guys.

I am working on a website to upload new standards for our tech infrastructure group.. the image editing program they gave me is a joke..
I am a web designer so I am pro with photoshop.. but it doesnt seem to make a difference..

As for the support mess.. that is also true. Our policy is, if an app is installed that is not officially supported by the tech team, then you will no longer be eligible to call in for tech support if you have any issues... unless you go back and re image the entire system with thier standard image. I understand that.. and am willing to take the risk. For some people I understand this may be a risk... but I once worked on the tech team (2nd level support analyst) and Im pretty sure I know what to do if things mess up..

Edit: I tried to PM you Frup, but I get an error..

As a Tech on a large Network I can sincerely state the reason they wont install it is because it hasnt been vetted/tested. We spent 12 months setting up a stable working SOE and will be buggered if we let a User balk it up. Most networks are the same.

No offence - but if you'd worked 2nd Level you wouldnt be asking this question....

You also wouldnt be 'Pretty Sure' because you'd actually know 100% what to do....

If you'd worked 2nd level you'd know that if you bypass Group Policy and install the software - you cant bypass Group Policy well enough to fix it if it screws up....

If you'd worked 2nd Level you'd understand why 'Users' have 'User Rights' - so they cant do what you want to do and create unecessary work....

As a normal Computer user you'd also understand the License may be legit but..... You only have one - if you get it on your work machine and then happen to also install it at home or on a friends machine you are in violation of the License agreement - and so is your place of work.
