Upgrading Image without admin privileges?

I'm wondering if someone can help me. I setup an admin image on our network. Most users don't have admin privileges so the I.T. tech compiled an executable that will allow users to install solidworks using the I.T. tech's credentials. It works great, but the problem is when I apply service packs to the image. When the user fires up solidworks it will fail to update because they don't have admin privileges. Is there any way to update the software without giving the user admin privileges? If they try to run the executable again that uses the IT's credentials will it give them the option to upgrade or will it install another copy of SW on the machine?

Thanks,
Dan
