Using the RUNAS feature

I am looking at this product to see if i can accomplish the following objective.

I want to install through a login script an application on workstations where the logged in user does not have local admin rights to install an application. This needs to be secure enough where the password is not displayed or sent in clear text or prompts for a password.

Can this product accomplish this?

Thanks for the advice ;)

hey, write an autoitscript with RunAsSet and use it with a fuction-user that has specified rights. Then compile it to a exe-file and don´t allow the recompilation.

There are many posts that talk about "RunAsSet"

Here are two I recall:

AutoIt allows you compile the script into an EXE; however, the script can be reverse-engineered/cracked to retrieve the password. There have been posts about security of the compiled EXEs....
