Installing profile based application in other users folder

Hi All,

Im trying to install AT&T application which is a profile based application. Means it installs in the user profile directly instead of other location.

My Problem is user dont have the admin access, either i need to use my ID or administrator ID. Which installs application into Appdata\Local folder which wont be accessible by other users.
How to i enable the application for other users as well without providing admin access

What ATT app is this? If it's for accessing the internet then that doesn't require any installed program, just plug in the wire or access wireless signal via icon in SYstem Tray. Any installed program beyond this for this purpose is bloatware.

But once we know what the program is for exactly we can help you better.

hi gregrocker,

AT&T is just an application used for teleconference. Application is not the issue. The thing is if I install this application it installs in the below path by default which cannot be changed,
This means that if another user want to use this application he wont have access to run this application. Same application has to be installed in another user session in the same machine to run it. But since admin rights is not there when i install in windows 7 it installs in Admin group profile which used for installation.
