Scripts in the "All Users" startup folder will run with the permissions of
the logging-in user.  So, yes, your restricted users won't have the ability
to run them.  You'll want to either get the wpkg service working correctly
(which I don't use, so I'm no help to troubleshoot it) or run your script
from HKLM/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run so that it runs as
the SYSTEM account (which has the appropriate permissions to install
software).  If you go with the second option, then you'll need to be sure
that "Domain Computers" or the appropriate group has read access to the wpkg
share on the server.
