XP Home & sharing Office 2000

  Young Ranger 19:07 23 Jun 03

I have installed Office 2000 which appears on the menu in my account but in the other family member accounts, only Outlook and the Small Office Tools appear.

Is it possible to share the rest of office with the other accounts or is this a restiction imposed by the licence ?

You can re-install for each user without violating the licence terms.

And even easier would be to copy the Microsoft Office Shortcust into the 'All Users' folder.

Griffog's second suggestion should work, as a workaround. See click here for an explanation.

Office 2000 should appear in each user's account, but there may be restrictions due to them being Users, not Adminstrators. The above link will explain it clearly.

griffog's second sugestion worked. Copying the shortcuts to the All Users folder enabled me to go into the other accounts and copy them again to both the task bar and the menus.

Thankyou both very much.
