Client can't access programs installed by administrator

Hi

I have installed a webcam and windows movie maker on four laptops and a desktop PC. They are on an NT domain, all clients XP Pro. I installed the software logged in as network Administrator as this was the only way it would let me do it. My question is, how do I place a shortcut on the client's desktop? It is a school and the kids are under 10yrs old so group policy restrictions include no right click, copy etc - so I can't create the shortcut from the client's profile. I have tried logging in as administrator, navigating to the Desktop folder of the local profile created on the local machine in Documents and Settings and pasting it there, but it is not there when I log in as client.

Cheers

Al

hi, there

Now you didn't mentioned what OS it's running.

But first look int the folder for administrator to find the shortcut copy and paste it into "all users folder"

then if it needs other permission's

under start - run regedt32
find the application rightclick it and set the appropiate permissions.

Hi

Thanks for your reply. The clients are XP Pro and the server is NT Server.

Should pasting the shortcut into the all users folder, and running regedt32, been done on the client or the server?

Thanks
