Is this doable?
My endusers are Standard Users on their macbooks and cannot install from AppStore without having the root password.
Pretty sure I have done this before, but I am drawing a blank today so I reach out for quick help.
In order to download the free AppStore App, I have to sign in - then it downloads/installs.
When I drag the App from Applications and into Composer for creating the DMG, it must remember that AppleID used to download it.
When I install the app to another box, it asks for the password of the AppleID used to download it.

If you don't want to play with removing the _MASReceipt from the app bundle (WARNING: this can break an app), bear in mind you may be able add the standard users to the _appstore group on the local machine. This supposedly allows them to use the App Store to install apps, but I've never done it...
I tried removing the receipt from KidPix 3D and upon opening the app, the system reported an error along the lines of "This application is corrupt and should be redownloaded". I forget the exact wording.
