    Hopefully someone can assist.

    I have a user who has been set up to access an application through a terminal server. She is in the same group(s) as everyone else, so the permissions are the same. When she logs into the terminal server, launches the application, and then attempts to enter data, she receives the following error:

    frmBOL::GridSetup() - Component 'Grid32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.

    I attempted to register the OCX, but the user wasn't an admin on the server. I made her an admin, logged off and back on, and then properly registered the file. Tested and it worked. Logged out as user, removed admin privileges for her, and logged her back in, but then she received the same error - OCX not correctly registered.

    Any thoughts? The part that's puzzling to me is that her perms should be no different than anyone else. I've removed and readded her, blown away the profile, but no luck. The only solution is to set her as an admin which, to me, is not truly a solution. It's definitely not something I want to do.

    Thanks in advance,
