The compatibility tool kit is nice (there is supposed to be one for XP
too I thought), but for a very comprehensive solution I would look at
BeyondTrust Privilege Manager (formerly a DesktopStandard product). It
is not free but will do the job without the need to poke holes in your
registry and file ACLs. It alters permissions at the process token level
so you don't have to apply custom permissions to files/folders or
registry keys to get things to work. They also have a free auditor
product which helps you identify problem applications in LUA
environments.

Definitely worth a look. I've never used it in production but have seen
quite a few demos and heard pretty good things about it from some other
folks I know.

If you guys haven't seen it yet: Compatibility Application Tool Kit (not
for XP)

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/aa905066.aspx

Of course this is for Vista and I think the latest rev is also for
Windows 2008.

This tool can automate the necessary changes to client profiles and
workstation to allow applications to run properly under Vista- even
those that require elevation.

I seen a demo and it looks worth the testing and usage- When you do new
Vista implementations.

Just FYI as many are still on XP.

Subject: [gptalk] Local Admin Prvilege...

Hi Everyone...

I have a particular requirement. One of my software needs local
admin privilege to run. Now if i'll make the domain users, member
of local admin they will be able to play with the system. i.e they
will be able to install/de-install programs with ease which i dont
want.

So, is there any way where i can allow that particular software to
run as local admin, without giving the local admin right to the
domain users...

Your suggestion/solution is highly welcome...

Thanks...
