Basic Question About Program Sharing

I'm a rookie, so please bear with me.

Just installed windows XP. Set up myself as the administrator and my kids
each in limited accounts on the same machine.

I guess I just don't understand the user accounts. While logged on as the
administrator, I installed one of the kid's games. It works great while I'm
logged on. Next I logged into each of my kid's user accounts and created an
icon (shortcut) on the desktop for the game.

But, when logged in to either of their accounts, the game doesn't function.
How do I correct this? Basically, I guess my question is, if I install a
program as the administrator, how do I make it available to everyone of the
users?

Usually it WILL be available for everyone. But of course this is up to the game itself to fix. So I suppose you could install the game in each profile (in the same folder) just so that everyone will get the needed registry settings. You may have to change the kid's accounts into admins in the meantime and then back to regular users when you are done.
