We have a client with 147 users that use a specific app. This app works fine under restricted user use EXCEPT that Once-A-Month update the vendor pushes out. This disables use of the app until the update is run. The update requires admin rights so we have to remote in to 147 machines and update this app.
The update is not a MSI file or anything we can "push out" via AD installers (GPO).
Is there a tool that will allow us to grant this ONE APPLICATION the rights to run as an admin? (I recall using Beyond Trust some time ago but that's an expensive solution for 1 application, today, and I don't even know if they're around, anymore).
Honestly I'm surprised this is not a feature already part of the Windows framework! We manage over 700 machines and this type of capability is routinely needed.
If it's built into Windows now, I would love to know what that is. Does anyone have a work-around for this type of issue? (note: the RunAs /savecred does not work cuz you cannot explicitely assign admin privileges to the RunAs command).
