Will WPT private instance work without having a local admin user? - anwargmalgave - 01-23-2015 01:26 AM

Network policy doesnt allow us a local admin user, Only domain users are permitted.
Will WPT work in that case? Huh
IF it works, which features will not be available?Exclamation

Thanks,

It might work for Chrome and Firefox which can clear out the profiles without needing any special permissions. I'm not sure about IE.

Some things that won't work:
- Traffic shaping
- tcpdump (probably)

The agent binary is also flagged as needing elevation so I'm not sure if you'll even be able to launch it.
