Liimted Account access to Game Folder



I am running XP-Home. After I installed a game, none of the limited users can launch the game. XP brings up a message to "Load the disk" even though the disk is already loaded and I can hear it spinning. This happens if launching from a shortcut, the program folder or the Start Programs folder while logged on as a limited user. I have also tried placing the shortcut, and even moving the entire program folder, into All Users. Still we experience the same problems.

The game lauched fine using any method from the administrator account. As administrator, I can even launch the game from the limited users folders.

How can I give Limited Accounts access to the game without having them use my administrator account?


I followed JimboF's advice of installing NT Security Configuration Manager and I can now grant full permission to the folder. However, the problem still exisits. Every time the limited user (with full rights to the folder, sub-folders, and files) trys to launch the game, windows prompts them to insert the CD.

Is there a setting I'm missing in setting up permissions? Tried to email JimboF directly but profile does not allow it.
