Deploy O365 without admin rights to run ODT

Hello there.

We're looking to deploy O365 programs using the Office Deployment Tool. It appears I have to run the command prompt as an admin.

Is there a way around this as I want to deploy O365 using group policy and don't want to create local admins on all workstations.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Msenior,

Thanks for your reply.

When using Group Policy (specifically, Startup script), the system will be the one running the ODT installation. As such, your user would not need to login to start the installation.
