Some applications don't install for all users
Why are some applications installing for all users, and others do not?
I upgraded Waterfox today via my administrator account and that updated on all user accounts. But when I updated Flash, it only updated for me, when a limited access account logged in, they are prompted to upgrade Flash aswell, when they click ok, -fail- insufficient privileges. The same goes for nVidia video driver updates, I install via my account, then the other accounts are prompted to upgrade too, but cannot because they don't have the correct privileges.
Seems strange, its not like video card drivers should have any link to the user profile and even if they do, the core app files should be in the program directory anyways?
I am sure the same thing happened when I setup new printers, I had to login to the limited user account, install the printer and provide my admin password to complete the install.. even though it was setup on my account.
