Windows 7/8 Power user install fonts


This is my first post in this forum.Sorry if i wrongly posted.
We are running windows 7 and 8 in our office.I am IT Admin there.In my office there are employees for designing and developemnt and one employee has some problem which i am not able to solve.So i posted here on these nice forums

He is running win 8 and he uses photoshop.Now due to security of our office and told by higher management to me i have ordered to configure computers in following way

There is one admin account for me and there is power user account for users.Both are password protected.
Now the problems starts.When he the user try's to install font himself a prompt appears for asking admin password and he always call me to install fonts for him since i have the admin rights only.

I want a tweak,setting anything which will give him the permission to install font himself without asking admin password.

I tried this Allowing NON Admin users to install FONTS. | cyber7 in my home but it didnt worked.

Remember i am admin and he is power user and both are passowrd protected
Please help me how can it be done??
