Win2K Permissions

I am testing out Win2K at home before I roll it out in a production environment. I want to learn as mush as I can before spending IT dollars for a training session. I have noticed that alot of programs (at least the ones I have install that are not MS products) have some permissions problems. For instance, a user with Domain Users perms will get a memory refference error when going through the profile setup. Other programs have problems updating the registry. Microsoft articles says that there is a registry problem and that you have to find the fixes for these programs at the products support site. Netscape and all the other sites dont have any fixes or even mention fixes for Win2K. There is no way I am going to give everyone admin perms so is there a known fix for any of these problems? Thanks.

What problems are you having.  You say you're having them, but you don't describe what products (and versions) you are having problems with - specific issues as well.  (I've run Win2K since Beta 3 at home and at work.  The only issue I've found (including with Netscape) is a known bug in Adobe Photoshop (known by adobe that affected NT4 as well) and Adaptec Easy CD Creator version 3.0.  This is not to say there aren't many others, but the way you're describing things, you'd think nothing ran the way it was supposed to.

I did mention a product. Netscape ,the latest version. A user with Domain User perms cant create a profile for himself. I bombs out with the memory ref error. Your using this at home so your probably using admin privs. Switch to User privs and check it out.

OK, so the point I want to make is do not roll out 2000 on a real network. There are still many bugs that prevent a lot of software from working. The patches that were found on MS site were irrelivant. I saw the big game patch. Who cares about that in a production environment though? I didnt see anything about Netscape though. I think those bugs were in place on purpose. Thanks.
