Launch a game as a basic user
Posted on 2003-03-06
I have my pc under 2000, and i use it with several accounts, of the user type (not power user, just user, to prevent other users of my pc to mess it up).
I want to run a game (half life not to mention it) as user, and I can't make it. I gave all the NTFS permission to the concerned user on (full control), and it is not enough. I used dependency walker to find the dlls linked to the hl.exe and gave full control over them to the user, and it still does not work. I also allowed this user to create and modify the registry values concerning half life, and it failed.
I don't know what to do, and can't find any answer to my problem, despite the fame of half life, and the fact that i'm sure someone else once tried to do it.
give me ideas, software which could help me, or even better the solution.
