Running XP with administrative rights and two limited users on a stand alone computer. I have a small program that I run for the whole system (administrator and all users). Getting the program to run is no problem as I list it in the registry under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE using the run key" so that it runs each time the computer is booted or a user logs on.
My problem is that the program has an "input box" that requires everyone to type in some information. This information is stored in the registry as such "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE software\myinfo".
When I run the program as an administrator I don't have a problem with the program running or my entering in the information and having the registry make sure it is correct. Once another user is logged on with a limited account, the program runs but doesn't check for the information in the registry ?
My Question is: Where should I place information in the registry for limited accounts so that they too must enter information when my program runs and then have the registry confirm this information (query) ?
Seems to me that it should be possible since my program will run each time the computer boots or someone logs on whether a limited account or not.
Thanks in advance
