Win2000 Domain with Win2000 workstations. A notebook on the network is user1, domain\user1 is unable to load it's Wilan connection software. Log in as domain\administrator and it loads fine.
Log off administrator and log on user1 and now it loads, but reboot and log on user1 and again it won't load. If I make user1 a member of administrators on the server, it still behaves the same.
If I tell the program to "run as " and select any local user it loads fine. It just will not load when logging on as a domain\user, any domain\user (except domain\administrator)
Any help greatly appreciated!

Hi

Have you tried making the domain user a member of the local power users group on the PC? Sounds like a permission is missing that is granted to local accounts only,

or try making the domain user a member of the local administrators group

log in as the domain user and he should have all local rights.

By default domain\administrator gets added to local users admin group on a client by default, so it would appear to be a local user rights issue. Don't give admin rights over the local pc unless you need or want to - (shudders) - the thought of my users having local admin rights is most scary ;-)) (No disrespect Zoldy2000 :)))

non taken.... it was simply a step I would have taken to diagnose the problem...  I certainly would not leave it that way.

P.S.  If the computer was not added to the domain then I don't believe the administrator would be added.
