Windows 7: Can't install Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in Guest account

Can't install Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in Guest account

Hi, I'm new to this forum, and hope to solve my problem with some expert guidance.

The problems started with me trying to create a shared file in onenote, which could be edited and viewed by all users of my computer. In the UAC, it asked me about some permission about "INTERACTIVE" and "SERVICE", if I remember right. I allowed it to do so, and hoped to set up the notebook in the public documents folder.

But, since then, the libraries (Documents, music, etc) reported being "Unresponsive" when I clicked on "Includes: 2 locations".

Also, the "See more results" link in the start menu reports an error as in the picture:

Can't install Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in Guest account-ddd.png

I recently installed Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in my computer, and then tried opening it in Guest account, but it just shows the following:

Can't install Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in Guest account-.png
Then:

Can't install Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in Guest account-b.png

Then it shows:

Can't install Autocad Architecture Metric (US) in Guest account-c.png

And then it disappears, and nothing happens. I'm unable to open the software even when I applied read&exec permissions for guest in the folder containing the program. Path: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Architecture 2011 (The folder containing the program)... (acad.exe)

All the other apps like chrome, pdf, etc are running without any problem, as this problem arose after their installation.

Also, please tell me why this app runs in guest account only if I select "Run as administrator". Other standard accounts are fine. Thanks!

I did not understand. I want to run the program directly from the guest account without anything to do with the administrator. I already said that the program runs with administrator permissions. I hope you got me?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I'm not sure how you did that either or most importantly why doing it in a guest account which doesn't have a user name or password :/
Most people have guest account disabled because of this very reason

You must of at some point entered a admin password to continue with either the install or running the program as admin.
