Virtual Earth - Profile issue

  1. I installed Virtual Earth on one of our notebooks (WinXP). I installed it with my local-admin account and then placed it in All Users.

    When other users log on, they cannot access Virtual Earth though. Is there something else I should do? I'm pretty sure the users all have the same permissions.

    Are the other users Admin accounts too.

    Also can you just install it on another account (not entirely sure how that works, does it add to, or wipe the programfiles Virtual Earth folder)

    Actually if you right click on the all users shortcut the properties, what do all the lines say?
    You may be able to adjust in there too.

    No, I don't think the others are admin accounts. They are just regular users. There will be several users on each notebook and we don't want to log in with each user account and install VE several times per machine.

    Thanks for the reply

    Well that's likely the cause
    Virtual Earth is probably using the Admins account temp location

    Check the properties (as mentioned)

    Or install on each account
