Windows XP rights and Director Player

When I log onto an XP machine in our lab as an administrator I am able to utilize the CD-Rom and its lesson plans.  When I log in as a regular user I get the following error message:  "Unable to copy the driver file C:\Windows\xobglu16.dll to your Windows directory.  Your disk may be full."  This shows up in a Director Player 5.0 window.

I have checked for security settings on the CD drives but there aren't any, only sharing.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

The CD in question contains a program that is not Windows XP certified, and is performing a task that violates security issues.  Standard users don't and shouldn't have write access to the system directiory.

If you need to be able to use this CD on this PC as a standard user you could elevate their prividges to that directory to allow write access, but that means they'd be able to place anything there.

Try running the program as administrator and leaving it running while you copy that file to a temp location.  When you close the program the copy in C:/windows is probibly deleted.  If so, copy it back from the temp location, and try the application as the standard user.  If it works, great.  If not, consider using a machine where the user can have elivated privleges.

if you absolutely have to have this program running as the user give just the windows directory write access to the users that need to run the program. i wouldnt use the everyone group but if security is not an issue. then this should work for you.
