Locked

Users and Applications

By rickyd ·
Recently we have been given a norton ghost load to build all of our computers. However, it seems as if the users do not have correct permissions to run the applications that are associated with the load. They can not save any of their setting for the applications. They just need to be basic users, but need to be able to run the programs. The administrator account seems to work fine with no problems. Is there somewhere in the registry to change permissions of the applications to regulate the access of applications. The system is not on a domain and does not have a domain login, they are only networked.

Running
NT WS 4.0 /SP6

Thanks
Rickyd

I'm not hot on NT/2000/XP but I'll throw in my 2 cents worth....

Possibly the applications are saving their settings in a protected are - can you move them at all (to somewhere the user has permission to change them)?

Are you able to use the administrator account to change the permissions on the applications folders?

Possibly the applications have been installed incorrectly, there is a whole minefield about installation & execution permissions....

Here where I work we had to put everyone in the Power users group on the PC for the applications to work properly. Hopefully this helps you.

assuming win2k/XP: add a local account on each pc for each user who will be using that pc. use the same username and password as is used to logon to the (workgroup) network.
