Giving Others access to game loaded by Administrat

  Halmer 20:49 03 Dec 2007


I've loaded Fifa 2007 on my laptop as administator for my lad not realising that when he logs on as a user the game isn't available. I don't want to reload it because he has saved games that will be lost. Can I give him access to the game in his own rights?

When installing the game there may have been an option to 'allow any user' to use the game. There may be this option somewhere in the properties of the games?

If not - I don't know whether this will work - create a shortcut in the Admin account, drag and drop if on the desktop in your son's account via Explorer. If it does work you may have to right click and select 'Run As' and enter the Admin user name and password.
