    You would need to have them download some kind of executable that would
    change the local policy. You can create an msi file that will accomplish
    this with the .NET Framework Configuration MMC snap-in.

    However, the users will need to be administrators (or perhaps Power User, I
    forget) to change the .NET security policy on their machine.
