user rights to application

Hello all,
I have built a small 2008 domain here at our college for 2 classrooms with sunray 270 thin clients.
This consists of 1 DC (VM), 2 terminal servers (hp blades c class) and 1 file and print server for data etc.
All is working well... group policys are good and a reasonably locked down situation for the studens is fine.  My problem is that there is one application installed with the client on the terminal servers and database on file server. (just a simple mdb) The client starts ok but stops with a report of not enough rights to the db. the administrator account runs it ok but no other user can, not even domain admins.
I think  its something to do with acl`s but im getting a bit lost now and dont know where to look.
Can anyone help please..
Thanks

If it is an MDB file then it might be wanting to write a temporary file to the location where the MDB is stored, for the duration of the time which the MDB is open. What permissions do non-admin users have over the location where both the program and MDB are stored?

The other route you must take is that the program is having issues accessing resources on the local PC from non-admin accounts. For relatively new programs, this should not be a problem because they are designed specifically to work with restricted user accounts, but older ones do not always integrate with Windows as well.

Thanks for the input. Found the problem this morning. I was so focused on ntfs permissions that i forgot about the share permissions. Everyone has only read permisions on the share. changed that and prog worked..

So essentially what I was sort of pointing towards with " What permissions do non-admin users have over the location where both the program and MDB are stored?" ;-)
