Usually only administrator can install software and not secondary users unless you have allowed them to. I think you need to configure settings to allow them to install s/w and then install the game/s in their section. I am sure others will contribute.

Unless the pc was setup to load programs for all users at the outset,I think you have to load all programs individually into each users set up.

do you mean that you want it available to all users?

If so go to MY COMPUTER/C DRIVE(or whatever letter is your harddrive)/DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS/<NAME OF USER>/START MENU/PROGRAMS..

Leave it at this point and go through the same thing again but instead of <name of user> open ALL USERS/start menu/programs

Then just drag the program from <name of user> to all users.
