Hello,

At work, we use an application over the network, it seems that this application is not working unless we set the users account as administrator, now the problem is that some people are screwing with the settings on the PC because we need to make them administrators to use that application.

So is there anyway in XP pro where i can set policies for the user and maybe add that application the the policy list so it works on limited users account?

We contacted the supplier and each time they say that they are looking for the solution.

we have a peer to peer network and not domain control or else it would've been easy.

and please don't advise me to use group policy editing to disable some functions because i am looking for a way that doesnt make me sit on each of the many PCs to set the Group policy.

thanks.

I would think that the solution revolves around giving standard users the permissions to interact with that particular software. It'll depend on what particular access errors that you're receiving - but usually sharing out the directory with the application (or modifying the permissions of it) will allow the users to access it.
