i wish it were clear (at least to me) why some programs do this...it's a pain in the butt...some programs will only run as the user that installed them...i.e. the admin...
a couple ways that i've found around this are
A: when you go to install a program...change the "kid's" user account to an admin account...install the game/program...then change the user back to limited
b: write a simple batch file (a txt file with the extension changed to .bat"
that includes the runas command with the savecred switch
this batch would look like this:
runas /user:administrator "<full path to exe of the game>" /savecred
now...once you make that file in notepad and save it as a bat (when you click save as...make sure the file type is set to all files and include .bat at the end of the file name) double click it...a command window will open up asking for the administrator password...enter that...now the game will load....and since you put the /savecred switch....it will remember the admin password for that batch file and all the kids will have to do is double click that file to start the game up..instead of clicking on the normal game icon
