Limited User access will not open files in software program

Software was installed for user with admin rights on Windows XP Home Edition. As soon as admin rights are changed to limited user rights the user cannot open the software. Access denied. I need the user without admin rights to be able to access the installed software. Any ideas?

Boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights.
if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.

please let me know if this helped you :)

Software compatibility issues with Windows Vista


ISSUE- Software compatibility issues with Windows Vista
SYMPTOMS-
Fortunately, many applications still work fine under Windows Vista. However, there are some applications which are incompatible with Windows Vista because they are not able to handle the changes in Windows Vista compared to Windows XP. User Account Control is one of those changes to offer a better secured operating system. Sometimes, this problem is solved by (temporarily) disabling User Account Control (which can be done at the item User Accounts in the Control Panel). But for security reasons, deactivating UAC is not advised!
RESOLUTION/ WORKAROUND-
Run as administrator:
Does an application not function properly or does it show an error message every time it is used, try to run it with additional administrator rights! Because most compatibility issues are solved by running an application with additional administrator rights. By default, an application is not started with those additional rights, but this can be done manually by right clicking (the shortcut to) the application and to choose for Run as administrator. Those administrator rights can also be added by default by right clicking the shortcut to the application and to select Properties, tab Shortcut, button Advanced and to activate the option Run as administrator.
Limited permissions:
The issues concerning the limited permissions is related to the problem with the administrator rights. Without the permission to modify files in a certain location, an application is not able to save a file in this folder (as example, it is not possible to change or add files in the C:\Program Files without the permissions to do it). In most cases this problem can be solved by running an application with additional administrator rights. A better alternative is adding permissions to modify the concerning folder. This is done by right clicking the folder and to chose for Properties, tab Security, button Edit (or the button Advanced) and to activate the option Full control for the concerning user account.
Virtual Store: virtualization of files
In Windows Vista, many folders are secured, which makes it impossible for an application to make changes to the files in the folders. For example, the folder C:\Program Files is secured: only an application with additional administrator rights is able to modify the files! However, many older applications continuously try to store files in this folder, which should not be placed there. To solve this issue, Windows Vista uses virtualization of files (which are stored in the Virtual Store). The application is not aware of this virtualization, and thinks the files are stored on the prescribed location. Virtualization is done separately for every user account, the files are stored in C:\Users\loginname\AppData\Local\VirtualStore. Program Files is one of the folders in the Virtual Store, which contains the user specific settings for the applications. All users must change the settings of the virtualized applications separately. This is an advantage as well because the changes won't effect the other users.
DISABLING THE VIRTUALIZATION
Because of the virtualization, files are stored on multiple locations (every user account has it's own virtualization folder), which makes it hard to handle them (the incoming folder of the file sharing software eMule is a good example). If the virtualization is unwanted because the files (and settings) have to be applied to all user accounts? This can be realized by giving all user accounts permissions to fully control all the files in the folder which else will be virtualized. Right click the folder and chose for Properties, tab Security, select Users and set the permissions to Full Control. If this procedure is to much work, the application can be run as administrator as well. This is done automatically by right clicking the shortcut and to chose for Properties, tab Shortcut, button Advanced.
Compatibility issues with older software:
Windows Vista manages some things differently compared to previous Windows editions, which can result in compatibility issues for older software. Some of the compatibility issues are solved by running a program in the Windows XP compatibility mode. This is done with the tab Compatibility of the program shortcut Properties (available by right clicking the shortcut). The compatibility mode pretends the program it is running in an earlier Windows edition. Unfortunately, it is not always a solution to compatibility problems.

TIP: If an older program is still not functioning as it should be, a virtual environment of a previous Windows edition can be a definitive solution to the problem. Here fore, Microsoft's has created the tool Virtual PC (download: www.microsoft.com/windows/virtualpc). This software virtualizes a whole new computer on which a previous Windows version can be installed.
Which applications are compatible?
Although there are compatibility issues, there are many programs which work properly (with or without additional permissions) within Windows Vista. Microsoft investigated many programs and made a list of Windows Vista-compatible software which is devided in two categories: the software is certified for Vista or the software works with Vista. When the software is tested by Microsoft and placed in one of those categories, the vendor is allowed to label the software with the logo Certified for Windows Vista or Works with Windows Vista. The page www.iexbeta.com gives a useful summation of (almost) Windows Vista compatible software. The combination of these sources must be sufficient to tell whether a program will work properly within Windows Vista.

How to hack admin password from guest in xp?


Nope. Must be an admin.
Lost Windows password:




  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

There is a free boot CD called Hirens.

I cant logon into window xp home edition,and i cant remember user name and password i want to disable them all


HI there. If you forgot your username and password try login with the administrator account. Username is administrator. Usually the password is blank. After that you can reset your passwords from Control Panel, User Accounts section.

If at the logon you use the welcome screen, hit twice CTRL+ALT+DEL, after that you can type administrator in the username textbox.

Please tell me if that solution was helpfull.

Software installation using vista basic


Very strange.

Do you get any error messages?
Are you able to download the programmes?

Vista works differently to previous versions of Windows, because of much improved protection. In essence you can no longer install programmes anywhere you want and you can no longer install programmes unless you have permission to do so.

There is a service called UAC which stands for User Access Control, which prevents normal users from installing software - only administrators are allowed to install software.

Even if you are the only user, you are not regarded as the administrator unless you say I am the admin.

When you click on something to download, at the top of the page a small wide yellow box will appear, right click on it and download the file.

Then when you run the installer another box will open asking if it can make the changes you want - you may need to give your password to continue.

Then install everything as their defaults. and all should be well.

Some older programmes do have problems - download them and SAVE then to your documents, then right click on the installer - you have a number of new options...

Run as Administrator (which may solve your problems)

Trouble shoot compatibility - which can resolve some older programme problems - you can set the system up to emulate Windows XP etc... which will solve most problems.

And if the installation fails it will ask if you want to re-install using default settings - say yes.

Finally, make sure you are downloading Vista compatible software and that it is the right software for your Operating system. You can not install 64bit (x64) software on a 32 bit (x86) machine.

If this helps you at all please vote!

Unable to update or sychronize with time.windows.com


you need admin\administrator rights to change anything on vista. it is suppose to be more secured than Windows XP.
administrator /user is power user rights, which don't have rights to change system setting, but you do have rights to install certain program.
login into the machine as administrator and provide the corect password.

Cant log on as administrator


Can you log in as:

Administrator
NO PASSWORD

This is the default admin login.

Once you are here you can right click MY COMPUTER and click MANAGE from the context menu.

In the LOCAL USERS AND GROUPS menu... you can open the USERS folder and start re-set your user accounts.

Failing this, get HIRENS... it has a MS password re-setter and you can re-set the admin password and log in.

Cant login to computer because I forgot the admin password. i can sign in as guest with limited access.please help me


Boot your computer into Safe Mode. It sometimes varies, but the typical way on most WinXP

based machines is to strike the F8 key during P.O.S.T. Once the drivers load you need to

access the Command Prompt. START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / COMMAND

PROMPT. A new window will appear.

At command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.

This is also an opportunity to set a new Administrator password.

Problem with the drive


Hi pravin,
One must pay close attention to the display screen when performing a new instillation of windows. Windows will show you the drive partitions. In your case windows will show there are two partitions. One C:\ & a second partition F:\. Perform a 3rd installation of windows. When you get to the screen where you can see both partitions (C: & F:) have windows delete the F: partition. Than have windows format the C: partition. Once C: has been formatted have windows install its self onto C:\
Install your driver software for your board. Than update windows through windows update service.
If you wish to back up your personal data to a CD/DVD writer, suggest you do this before formatting the system. Suggested folders to back-up.
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Desktop
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Favorites
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Local Settings\Identities
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\My Documents
Data from any program you may have installed.

Once windows has been updated & you install anti-virus software you can copy & past each folder over the new folder in windows.
