To install the meeting client, it is recommended that the user be logged on with an account that is a member of the Administrators group. If the user’s account is not a member of this group, the user can still install the meeting client (that is, perform a user-mode installation). However, be aware that if the user does not have Administrator permissions, the MODI print driver will not install, and the user will not be able to import documents that use the MODI print driver, such as Microsoft Office Word or Microsoft Office Excel. Alternatively, you can install the meeting client by using either Microsoft System Management Server (SMS) or by running Setup as a different user.
|The meeting client installation package includes the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer. To ensure that the Document Image Writer works correctly, the meeting client must be installed from a user account that is a member of the Administrators group.|
Running Setup as a Different User Using Systems Management Server (SMS)
If you use SMS in your environment, you can use SMS to remotely log on to the Office Live Meeting client installation server as another user to run the installation program. The user account you use to log on must be a member of the Administrators group on the target computer.

Server, see Systems Management Server at
Running Setup as a Different User
If you do not use SMS in your environment, you can run the Windows Installer as a user with the necessary permissions to install software on your computer. On the computer where you want to run Setup, right-click LMSetup.exe, and then click Run As. Then, type the user name and password of an account with sufficient permissions to install software on that computer.
