transfer settings/ profile to adminstrator account?

By Grazuncle ·
Hi everyone

I have Avid MC5 (video editor) loaded on my pc.. for the past few months I have had error messages generated.. usually Access violation or file sharing violations. on the forum help they suggest 99% of these are permission related.

I have two accounts on my pc Win7 the admin account and Editor account which I gave admin rights to.

They suggested I set the Advanced rights to the Editor account.

However I thought it would be easier to get rid of the Editor account and use the original Administrator account.. (no sharing or anything like that then).. Well I logged onto the Administraotrs account and tried to load some of the applications showing on the Start/programs menu and they would not run. I always choose 'for any user' when in stalling programs.. but they only run in the Editor account Doh!)

So.. can i transfer The Editor account settings to the Administrators account and run things like they did in the editor account... or just open a bottle and forget it?

any help appreciated

But I would imagine you'll have to reinstall it in the Admin Account to get it working.

What happens if your attempt to run it as Administrator? Right click on it and select "Run as Administrator".
