Administrator rights to the Server for the Network Client Install

To allow a user to run a Network Client Install, the user must be able to read the server's registry. (This access is not necessary for Local Clients.)

There are two ways to achieve this:

     Make the user an Administrator on the server.


     Give the user Read Permission to the registry, as described below:

1.  Open the registry editor using RegEdt32.exe and navigate to the following key:


2.  View the permissions for this registry key by selecting Edit\Permissions from the menu. THE PERMISSIONS ON THIS REGISTRY KEY APPLY TO THE WHOLE REGISTRY.

3.  Add a user or group and give them Read permission. The user or group will then be able to read the whole registry.
