So I have someone send out a joke .ppt file in my office, and now im getting requests from users to install powerpoint on their machine. I know its because of the joke email, because its from users who would never need powerpoint for their job.
How do you handle requests like this. I try to get them to explain to me exactly why they need it, that software is not free, the license is about $400 (for office 2010 STD OPL) and if they absolutely need it for business-related matters, I will seek approval from the vice president.
That usually gets them to be quiet.
How do you handle these types of requests?
