Install - program unavailable in limited account

  Spock999 16:27 24 Dec 2006

I recently changed my PC and decided to follow security advice and set it up so that I have a limited account for normal day to day activities and an administrator account to manage the computer. I am using XP Pro SP2.

Most programs can be installed from the administrator account and used in the limited account. I have one program (egames solitaire master) which will not run from the limited account and is not visible when you look at all programs from the start button.

I have raised this as an issue via the egames website but they are not interested (its a windows permission issue not a crap installer issue!).

I have tried to temporarily set the limited account as an administrator account but that does not give access to some necessary file and the installation fails.

I know that I can install and run it from the admin account but that defeats the point of having the limited user account.

Grateful for any advice?

you have to set it up in your security policy.

But sorry, I can't remember the exact details without sitting in front of the machine (and I don't have one here).
