I know this is not an answer to your question, so please excuse me. Will AutoCAD run without users having administration rights ? I know in previous versions, despite autodesk saying only power user rights were required, AutoCAD would have problems unless users had administrator privileges.
Right click setup.exe and Run as... Administrator or your domain credentials. Keep in mind that sometimes Autodesk will see an install done thru RDC as a violation to the EULA and it may prompt you with an error as such. Good Luck!
the IT guys always ask us to logout before they remote login to do administrative things like install software etc...if they are doing a remote login to talk us through something they do not ask us to logout......so maybe thats the answer. loagout before they remote login
I have tried this, but we have the users locked down so much that option will not operate. There was a way thru the command prompt to allow an administrator to install software, but I can't remember what that was.

Try not locking down the users so much. There's absolutely no excuse for having a user run as a restricted user. In fact, the only reason this problem exists is because someone in your company has a power trip. I mean no offense, but to me it is a sign of an incompetent IT staff. I deploy hundreds of computers in my enterprise and all of them have local administrator privilege. It is a requirement to install Autodesk software and it some cases even to run it. Many of the problems associated with the product could be avoided if IT stopped handicapping their users. The bottom line is, if you can't fix a problem that is caused by your users, then you have absolutely no business being in the MIS department. Restricting the user is not preventative maintenance. Provide the rights and the problem disappears. Enough said. I'll get off my soap box now. Everybody else can hold their applause.
