Hi,

This is a very common problem with restricted accounts .. the very fast and simple solution is to log on as Administrator
Open User's from control panel and elevate each account to administrator.

Log Off and log on to each account to allow the MSO installer to configure MSO then when all accounts have installed just simply log back on as administrator and return the account to restricted.

There are other methods but this will do the trick in no time .

Cheers

You can use control passwords2 via command prompt to elevate them to power users.

Hi Tarnlad......Changed their accounts to admin and installed mso but when i go back to their accounts to open word windows installer starts again but then mso goes through the congig process again then after a couple of mins word is there...Surely you should just be able to open word as normal ..Thanks
