So you have an application that needs to update all the time...
So you want to try this "non admin" thingy I keep harping about but you have this application that updates like every week... so how do you update it..but still run as LUA at the same time?
Well in Aaron's blog he has some ideas in part one... but one way you can consider running that "one" app is setting up a batch file that does a RunAs in front of the application. Tristan has an old blog post on the topic.
If the application only needs updating by one person.. let that one person handle the updates.. if it depends on all workstations needing updates... well you'll need to decide the best way to handle this.. maybe not right now (and especially not during tax season...) but just keep in mind how your clients work and need to have their applications to run. For those that need constant updating.. you might need to anticipate those needs.
