Hi People.

My daughter has always used my user account under supervision, but i decided it was time to create an account for her which i have done , but games like runescape & GTA have not appeared on the new account.
Is it possible to somehow transfer the games from my account to hers without having to download them all over again.

Thank You.

Most of the time they will be located in C:\Program Files\ so just creat a shortcut to the program on the desktop.

If you want to keep the userdata:
copy the folders from
C:\Documents and Settings\[old account]\Application Data\[Folder name]
to
C:\Documents and Settings\[new account]\Application Data\[Folder name]

I can't tell you the exact details because:
1. I don't have these games.
2. I'm running Windows Vista at the moment.
