Hi everybody,

For systems engineer who wan to install Acad2006 for a user account without setting him into the administrators group, here is the way I did.
I think this could me usefull for some of us:

1- log into the local admin account
2- set the account of the user who will use autocad 2006 into the local administrators group
3- logoff
4- logon in the user's account
5- install autocad 2006
6- one it is installed, launch it and activate the license if you are in standalone mode
7- set the user's preferences (import them if an older of Autocad was previoulsy installed on that computer)
8- quit autocad and log off
9- logon in the local administrator account
10- remove the user account from the local administrators group
11- set it into the "Power Users" group
12- set the full control autorisations for the user account (or a group called 'Autocad2006' which the users belongs to) on the following directories :
C:\Program Files\Autocad 2006
C:\Document And settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk
C:\Document And settings\\Application Data\Autodesk
C:\Documents And settings\\Local settings
13- log off and test

Note: this is the way I did, maybe there is a better way. If you found another way, reply to me !

I've used RUNAS by right clicking on the install file and selecting Run
as... Then using an admin account to install it. Then when the user starts
AutoCAD the secondary install is run automatically and the user is ready to
go. This is for a user that is a "Power User".
