Running Desktop software without local admin rights

Is it possible to run Blackberry Desktop Software without the user having local admin rights? I have a number of users who have work BBs who need to use BDS, but I am in the process of correcting my predecessor's decision to give everyone local admin rights.

Hello gheatley,


Welcome to the Support Community!

The BlackBerry® Desktop Software will need to be installed in a Windows® user account with local admin rights, but it can be used from within other user accounts with more limited permissions.
