Some would say I'm chasing a lost cause but I am ever-optimistic.
I'm running XP HE with 1 Admin. acct. & 1 Limited account [for my 4y.o.
nephew]. I have a number of games & educational packages that I want him to
be able to access in his account. So far, with little or no success.
The most recent package I have installed as per suggestions made in Michael
Solomon's earlier message [copied below **]. Still no success. When I
attempt to run the package in the boy's acct., I receive an error message
saying that "a required .dll [specified at the time but I don't have it in
front of me] could not be copied to the Windows directory - disk is full"
[disk is nowhere near full].
1. What, if anything, can I do to possibly resolve this specific issue?
2. Is it worth persevering with separate accounts? or
3. Should I cut my losses & buy him an Etch-a-Sketch?
Thanks for anything you may be able to offer [not including wise cracks].
** Most applications weren't designed for this type of multi-user
Such applications need to be installed in each specific user's account to
whom you wish to grant access.
First, be sure the account to which you wish to grant access is set to
administrator and not limited. Install the applications to the same folder
in which it was originally installed. This will look the same as one
install on your hard drive but create the pointers necessary for this user
to have access to the application.
Once the installation is complete, you can return the account to its limited
status if that is what you want and the user should still have access.
