Yes, but Clippy makes an idiot of himself in the first act, so never let it be said that MS employees don't have a sense of humour.

this is true
SMS/SCCM installs - run once for every user who logs on - otherwise it complains and doesn't work.
msiexec.exe /i RHSetup.msi /quiet

So does this one work under limited user accounts??

In theory, yes, but only because it can't be installed for all users, as jc1875 has found:
The issue here is that although the shortcut is correctly created in the All Users start menu when ALLUSERS=1 is specified, the actual program files are always installed to AppData. So you have to install it separately for every user. Apparently whoever wrote the installer didn't really think their design through.

Careful with this - I can see it putting some ICT teachers out of a job.

I don't know, not sure if I'll be asked back after asking such blunt questions last time!

Epic, as per the forum posted above they do a version that installs for all users http://officelabs.vo.msecnd.net/ribb.../5/RHSetup.msi

Yes, basically I'm an idiot for not reading the FAQ, where this is clearly labelled complete with a big sodding download button.
