Im setting up settings on a computer and i have a little dilemma. Im running the program "Open MG Jukebox", Its been installed but only computer administrators can use it. I need to set it so that limited accounts can access it too. Is there a way I can tell the computer to allow limited users to use programs they would normally not be able to use?

a little more info might be helpful, like what sytems are you running and are you a sytem admin with rights and authority if not ask your system admin.

Go to the folder where the program is installed and right click, select properties and select the security tab. Add the users you want and give them read & execute. That should do it.

you could always try right clicking on 'my computer' and selecting 'manage'. Then choose the 'local computers and groups' and under users, select the user who you want to be able to run the program and then choosing the 'member of' tab. If you add them to something like the print operators group I think that might just give them enough to run the program but not really do anything else.

Hmmm...are you not using NTFS? You must not be if you don't have the security tab. Maybe wlandymore's suggestion will work.

Also, under Folder Options | View Tab Under Advanced Settings, make sure that 'Use Simple File Sharing' is not checked.

This setting determines whether the Security Tab is displayed.

This applies to Windows XP. Not sure about the others...

Well, speaking for myself, I have trouble keeping track of all the different settings of these new fangled operating systems. :)
