    users are not granted admin rights to their pc's.  This causes a lot of difficulting anytime we apply a CU to LMK and Glawlaunch detects that a new rich client needs to be downloaded and unpacked.  Is there anyway to package the rich client as an executable, msi, etc... that can be pushed out to users and made available to them when they login to the pc's so that they do not have to pull down the new files themselves?  Surely this client is the only LMK client that does not allow users local admin rights and someone else has figured out a way to deal with this.

    Hi SP,

    We also do not allow most users to install applications to their machines.  In our case, we run the Rich Client as a Citrix application. This allows us to control access to the application, control the related software requirements (java), and allow access externally to the users that have tokens for two-stage authentication.  It also gives us the ability to make this available at some of our remote locations where network infrastructure is less-that-adequate (in other words, really terrible).  Finally, it greatly reduces the hardware requirements for the end users.  I think Rich Client requires something like 4GB of memory, which is hugely overkill for most of our users - and impossible for some locations that are working on 10-year-old laptops (which is another story altogether).

    Obviously, there are significant infrastucture requirements and costs related to the Citrix option, but we use Citrix extensively within our organization so we already had this available to us.  It took us a while to work out the bugs, but now it generally works
