Application works as Administrator but get error when run as Terminal Services User

I have an application written in Visual Basic 6 that may have been initially installed incorrectly on a Windows Terminal Services computer (not sure who installed 1st).  I deleted the app using Control Panel logged on as administrator, reinstalled and the application worked perfectly from the Admin console. A Terminal Services User tried to run the same application and a message appears that a module can not be found. It appears that the user's desktop can't see a component of the application.  I'm not very experienced with Windows Terminal Services and am wondering if I need to set permissions up for a particular user to use this application or if, by chance, the application was installed incorrectly 1st time (not installed through control panel) and if this isn't causing a problem now. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

Try to find the location of the file the program is searching for, and give users read permission to that file.

There are applications that won't play happily with Terminal Services.

I run into them often.

There are best practice methods out there to ensure that the program you wrote will work under TS.

I forget the specifics but it has to do with the architecture of TS.

Try this
1. Uninstall the app
2. Go to a command prompt and enter change user /install
3. Install the application
4. Go to the command prompt and enter change user/execute
5. Fire it up.
