Win2k prof. w/ standard domain user righ

By minh ·
I have just recently install win2k prof for my client. Everything seem to go pretty smoothly except for two little things.

1. Quickbook 2000
2. Microsoft Word 97

I have try to installed the above two softwares as a "local" admin w/ all the admin rights, NT domain admin, and installed as a NT 4 ' domain user' with standard user rights. None of this seem to make any difference.

Quickbook 2k will only work if I have some type of admin rights. If I am login as a admin to my own machine (local) its work fine. If I am login as a domain admin, its work fine also. But If I login as a regular domain user (which work fine in windows 9 I cannot run qb 2k, Its give me some type of error msg in regard to the software key.

As for my Word 97, If I login as a standard domain user - the spell check is not available (it is not even gray out, it is simple not there at all). But If I use an admin account the spell check is available.

Does anyone know of some trick to get around this other than give this person admin rights.

Please help.

Thanks
Minh

Make sure that the user has a local username and password on the Win2K Pro workstation that is exactly like his domain account. Remove the software from the computer. Log in to the workstation only - not the network, with the users' username & password. Reinstall the software.
