Installation possibility in User-Portal in "User-Context"
I am looking for a feature, that allows Software to be installed in "User Context". Currently, if a software is published in the software portal, the user itself can initiate the installation. The software is then pushed to the UserAgent and the service installs the software with its system account.
I am looking for the possibility to launch installations within the user context (to access HKCU or %APPDATA% from the current user account running this software). Background is that a distributed package (via software portal) or a software installation job could do things like adjusting the signature of the user or changing several flags in the registry HKCU context.
Other systems like Altiris, SMS (SCCM) allow selection of the context.
It is clear to me, that user accounts do not have administrative privileges but this kind of software/scripts do not need administrative privileges and do changes only in the user context.
Could you please implement an option during package deployment that allows a selection whether the installation is being performed in user context or system context.
Ideal would be:
- system non interactive (doesn't matter whether the user is logged on or not)
- system interactive (runs interactive in system context, user can interact with the interface, user must be logged on)
- user non interactive (runs in background, the user must be logged on)
- user interactive (software runs as interactive thread, user must be logged on)

The idea "Installation possibility in User-Portal in "User-Context"" is asking for near the same solution.
