Windows 7: Unable to start certain applications on different user

Unable to start certain applications on different user

Hey there,

Guess this is going to be my first asking post ^^

I've been having problems with installing certain applications, e.g Autocad LT 2006

I was able to have it running under both compatibility mode and w7 mode using both local and domain administrator.

However I am unable to run it as a standard user or as a power user

Anyone has encountered such issues?

Any workarounds?

Thank you in advanced

Hello, Welcome to SF,

I guess the application your referring to Autocad LT 2006 is not supported on Windows 7. But since your running it it might require Administrator privilege. I think the best thing to do would be to just Run those program as administrator(If possible).

Hope this helps,
