Relengers need to do things on winadmin such as installing Java.

ISTM the best answer is to make everyone a local admin on that host, but perhaps the better answer is a distinct administrative user, or even an authoritarian "all admin tasks must be done by IT" which will be difficult with limited windows experience.
Interesting - I seem to have local admin privileges, and I'm a local user.  It looks like I have the same group membership as everyone else on the server.

Coop, can you describe how to install Java, and I'll try it out?
I just went to: and followed the instructions to download and install, and then eventually got hit with the prompt for the Administrator password.
Huh, I see the same thing.  I think we'll need to wait for Matt.

Matt, we should have these passwords in the password file!!

Once I get my gpg working again I will get them in the password file. I have made all users local admins on this box for the time being though. Sorry for the delay.
