I have a client who when logging in with administrator privileges the main menue form of my access 2000 mde runs fine.  I ve got it linked to a zmousetrap.ocx in the system32 folder.  

If they login as a restricted user with full read write permissions to the program files directory where the mde is a dialogue comes up when the form loads saying that a prarameter value cant be found - this same thing happens when the zmousetrap is not registered so im assuming its that

We tried the office 2003 sp3 hotfix as it describes this error well - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/945674 but that did not work

wondering if there is now an issue with xp sp3?

Could that be a machine specific?
Checked that the ActiveX is registred while logging in as a ristricted user?
DOes acess 2003 work fine for restricted users without the z----.ocx?

No its not machine specific
yes access 2003 works fine for restricted user without non specific ocx

So the problem is OCX Related.
Compare registration with Administrator account!

Moving the OCX next to the mde and registering it there fixed the problmem
