Tearing my hair out.

I've got three accounts set up: 1 as administrator, one as standard and
one guest.

UAC is on for all of them. I've been trying to install some software to
the standard account ONLY. I've tried from the standard account and from
administrator. I only want that software on the standard account NOT on
the admin.

How do I do that????

Similarly there is software that I use that I only want showing up in
the Admin account NOT on the standard one.

Is there some deep config thing I need to do? Also, is there a way I
can keep UAC on for the standard and guest but NOT for admin?

Please help, I'm at my wits end.....
Cypher

Re: Tearing my hair out.

I've made a change. Set up an admin account and both my wife and my
account are standard. Is there a way to pick and choose which software
gets installed where? (ex from the admin install half life 2 to mine
only and pampered chef only to hers.)?

yes, when you install the software it'll ask you if its to be installed for
you or all users

Ah so its the installer program. IF it doesn't ask then it just goes to
all accounts. Gotcha. Funny, here's hoping MS puts something in the next
release that will ask you if the installer program doesn't. Thanks Andy!
That was a very frustrating couple of hours.

Not necessarily. Up to date well written installation programs should ask.
If they don't the program may either install for all users or the current
user depending how it was programmed.
