Tried that. The problem is since under windows 2000 server domain controllers there is no "Power User" group you have to be admin to install it. Once its installed, even under a local user account, I can right click on the EXE and choose Run As and enter the admin username and password and it will start fine. The problem is the IT dept doesn't want to give the web/graphics dept admin rights so we are really up the creek unless we can find a work-around.
So to recap:
Corel has been reinstalled
Domain user accounts can't start corel. The Splash screen starts and disappears.
Domain admins can run Corel
Local accounts can run Corel.
IT doesn't want to give admin rights to the users who need corel.
Local user accounts are planned to be purged in a week
Yea, I just make this more and more difficult. Don't I?
