    I have a question about several users on a win2000 machine. I noticed when loading applications, not all users get access to the program. I see the user profiles in doc-settings folder, but not the applications.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Bob

    It really depends on if the program gave the user that installed it the ability to install it for all users. Win2000 keeps a different set of registry settings for each user, therefore not all programs would work correctly if everybody had access to them..

    You may try moving a shortcut for the program to the "all users" "start menu" folder, it may or may not work.

    Thanks, I did try that, but when the user clicks on the icon, an error message appears about access to the program.

    Is this a common problem, or do you install an application for each user?

    It's not a problem. The administrator has the capability of giving different people different access. It's call system security.
