  • Some installed programs not listed and running in another user account?

    I have the following user accounts created in my PC.
    A ( admin account )
    B ( limited account )

    I have created the B ( limited ) account for security purpose.

    Issue : I can access all the programs ( Start > All Programs ) in the A account but,

    some of the installed programs are not listed and not running in B.

    Following applications are not listed.

    1.Ccleaner

    2.Vista inspirat brico pack ( vista visualisation for xp ). It is not working in B account.

    ...etc

    Could you suggest me a solution for this?

    Add the appropriate user account to the NTFS permissions of the Program you want to allow them to access to. Also, ensure that the sortcuts are added to the other user account's desktop.

    Was you given the option to install the software, so all users could use it or just the currently logged on user? It may be a case of uninstalling and then reinstalling and choosing the relevant option.

    If you don't have access to the security tab, disable Simple File Sharing.

    Open up My Computer.

    Click on Tools, Folder Optons.

    Click on the View tab and scroll to the bottom. Remove the tick from 'Use Simple File Sharing'.

      I did't get the option to install the software for all users. However, remaning softwares which has no such option while installation are working fine with B account.
