    I installed the game of Life on my grandchildren's computer using the administrators account. The icon to run the game shows up in the "all users" folder, but they can't run the game from their accounts. It will only work on the administrators account. How can I make this work for them?

    Their OS is Windows XP Home.

    If the exact error msg. is needed, I will be over there this afternoon and will get it. I'm just hoping it is a common problem that I have missed in setting it up.
