2K Pro / NT Domain

By mark ·
Since rolling out 6 new 2K Pro PC's in a small NT Domain of 1 PDC and 5 BDC's and 50 clients (all SP6a) I am experiencing problems with Word 97 and Outlook 98.. These apps have the latest SR's and patches. For example, in Word 97 the Spelling & Grammer function is not available at all for users (it is available if logged on as Admin). Also, Photo Editor doesn't work. In Outlook 98, users cannot print emails unless they open them first and cannot send a document by using the File>send to>mail recipient feature. I have tried giving users Full Control over the relevant folders and changing the perms in the registry but to no avail.

Windows 2000 has increased security on the registry compared to WinNT. You can open the registry and find the Office branch, then assign change rights to all users (or domain users, etc.) or you can give the users on those machines local power user rights. We have been actually change the registry security settings so that it doesn't matter who uses the machine.

Hope this helps.
