Quickbooks as a Restricted (Non-Administrator) User

Yep, another annoying program that demands admin rights.  Here’s how to get around that…..

Registry permissions:

The Users group must be granted “Set Value” and “Create Subkey” on:
HKLM\Software\Classes\QuickBooks.CoLocator.1
HKLM\Software\Classes\CLSID\{E53C85D6-E6D9-4BCF-A632-72062A99AA7F}
HKLM\Software\Classes\.qpg
HKLM\Software\Intuit

The Users group must be granted “Full Control” on:
HKLM\Software\Intuit\QuickBooks
File permissions:

The Users group must be granted “Modify” (write + delete) permissions on:
C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks
Don’t forget, there may be a policy in place that prevents the installer from running as a normal user.  This will cause problems when applying patches or updates.  You can chose to change the installer behavior by having it run with elevated privileges.  Not neccissarily a great idea and a topic for some other time.
