sharing programs
I just got a new computer with Vista- I
have installed several programs on the administrator account and they work
fine there but I can not access them from the standard user account- why and
how do I fix the problem?

Re: sharing programs
Hi Jill,

If they weren't designed with Vista's user environment in mind (ie: not
fully compatible), then you will likely need to reinstall them under each
account that wants to use that software.

Try putting a shortcut for the share toy on the standard
user desktop, then right click on the shortcut, and adjust
the compatibility tab to have checked as "run as administrator".
If the program is only built for XP (and many haven't caught
up), also invoke Run in compatibility mode for XP SP2.

In Romans 1 there are qualities of Unregenerate man listed
which describe him in the last days.
Is your quality found on this list??
