Installing Software for users without Admin rights

By dyarbrough ·
I am having trouble installing software. I am installing software for a user without admin rights, and I cannot give this user admin rights. So I install the software under my user name (YES I have admin rights) and it works fine but when the user who will be using the software logs in, he does not have full functionality of the Application.

Also I have tried installing the software logged in as the user without admin rights and using the "run-as" option. I still run into the same problem.

The computer is running XP PRO service pack 3

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated !!!

Some apps require Admin the first time they run.

Remove or uninstall the application.

Log on as yourself or other account with Admin privileges. Reinstall the software. Give the user Admin right (temporarily; stay with me).

Log on as the user. Start the application then close it. Log the user off and lower his privileges down to Power User. Log him back on and try it.

You may need to give the user full rights to the directory where the program is installed.
