Restricted users are not being allowed access to local installed codecs

I pushed out a custom msi with all klite codecs.

Restricted users can not watch the video DVD. I have used WM9 and zoom player(WM10-11 are not approved for install currently but we did test and it is having the same issue). While using zoom player I noticed that the users are not being allowed access(they do not show up in the dvd configuration area) to the dvd codecs.

When I log on with my profile I can perfectly play the dvd and gain access to the codecs with MP9 and Zoom.

I created a seperate area for the codecs and gave "everyone" full access to that folder and still it fails for restricted users.
Ristricted users with local admin access: DVD fails to play.

I'm stumped!

    Can you set it to "run as" a user with the required priveliges? (create a generic local admin, and set the player to runwith these elevated privs.)

    Accepted Solution

    We ended up packaging up WinDVD and pushing it out to the clients. This worked without issue.
