We have Windows 2000 PCs on an NT network and in every case, the only users created on the PCs are the default administrator (with the same password as the NT administrator) and guest, and everyone logs into the domain. When software is installed, we log into the domain as administrator, install and so far no problems.

However, we have been trying to install a particular program and despite trying every combination of who is logged in during installation or who is set up as users on the PC itself, the only way a normal user can log in and run it is if they are given administrative rights on the domain, which is not what we want.

I know installation and access rights is a common topic, but can any one suggest where the problem is?

Sometimes, there are services and processes that need different access. When you install the software as administrator, and then try to login as someone else and run it, the service or process might not be able to function correctly because it doesn't have the appropriate access.

Suggest you check manual, FAQ, "readme", website or call the software's tech support.
