How to run games under limited user...

The only way I've been able to run my games on XP was one of two ways:

1. Initially, I installed it onto the user account. Can only run game when that particular user.

2. Now, I have games installed under C:\Games. I can only run the program if I do the "run as" command and input the admin name and password.

Is there another way of setting it up so other limited users can play games without knowing the admin credentials? Thanks.

Most games will need to be run in a user with Admin privledges or using Run As. Sorry, as far as I know, theres no way around this, due to the "limited" nature of the privledges afforded to a limited user.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
