Re: Allow another user access to program?
In the Security Tab, click the Advanced Button at the bottom. Click the
Permissions Tab. If you still don't see those accounts, Click the Edit
On the next dialog box, click the Add Button. In the "Enter the object name"
box, type the exact name of the account you wish to add to the list.
Click the Check Names Button and then click OK. Another box will pop up,
select the Full Control box in Permissions. Start clicking the OK buttons
until your out of there.
Reboot and log on with that user to check.
