Hi,

Having just installed XP Pro on the PC, I have set up 2 accts. One for the children (Limited user) and one for the adults (Admin rights).

I installed a game for the children (and the Mrs) under the Admin user but when I tried to run it under the children logon it failed. So I copied the shortcut to the "Shared Documents" directory (in hope) and still it did not run so... I need your help in getting this to work properly. All other programs I have installed (Office, Spyware progs, AV, Firewall etc) haven't give me this problem.

The program is advertised as ok to run in XP.

TIA.

What game?

Some games will not work in a limited account.

It worked under the Admin account.

It's a Mahjongg game.

Not really resolved but closing anyway. I'm sure it's something simple which I'll eventually stumble across.

Thanks to all who responded.
