User Accounts - Office 2000

By senitaf ·
Currently running a NT4 network, one of the PC's connected to the network is a Windows 2000 desktop. In the past it has always been logged on as the same person, a different person has attempted onto the PC, and a user account for the PC was set up. However once they were on the PC none of the Office 2000 products could be accessed, I got error messages that s/w needed to be reinstalled, have been on the Microsoft site, and followed their suggestions but still to no avail, I am sharing the Start Menu and Programs folder.
Just wondering does anyone out there have any suggestions, or is it possible to turn off the user profiles for the PC??

Thanks in advance.

It is possible that when Office was originally installed it was done so only for the user who was logged in. One recommendation would be to remove the software completely, then log onto the workstation as an administrator and install the software for all users.

Secondly, make sure that the user who is logged in is also a member of the local workstation's Administrators group. This will allow them to reinstall the software or at least insert the Office CD and install additional components as needed.

Hope that helps!
