We have been removing local admin permissions from users in the practices. There are however some issues with R4 being able to run and update?
We have two issue we come across and wanted to know if there is a way round this that anyone has come up with?
Thank you for your questions.
We will review your note about the program data repository; this is something that has only been available in later versions of Windows.
The Update R4 function checks the version of the system and makes sure all corresponding files are downloaded from the server. It also registers supporting files for the application.
If you would like a detailed list of those DLL and OCX files which are registered please feel free to contact me direct and I can provide you with a these.
Do you have a list of what it checks to compare the version compared to the local copy and then what files it copies down as well? This would be handy to know as we should be able to replicate the function via an elevated login.
Do you know if R4 needs to write anything else other than to the program files folder?
