I have installed an arabic to english dictionary program called Golden Alwafi.  I can use the program no problems when i am an administrator but as soon a regular user tries to execute the program they get "Divide by Zero" error and the program won't start.  I have given permission for "everyone" to have modify rights on the desktop icon and on the program file program for Golden Alwafi.  I have not done antything to the registry.  Any help will be appreciated

That page comes up with gibberish.  What does it say.  I did google the question myself and have tried to look at this page also.  Can you tell me what it says if you can read it

I have found out that the program will only run when the user is an admin.  This is not acceptable in my situation.  Users have limited rights which will not allow them to add programs etc.  Any idea how to get around this.  Is there a way to make the program always "run as" administrator.  Maybe a bat file or something like that

I have found my own solution.  I have edited any registry that is associated with golden al wafi and given users and everyone full access.  I gave permissions to the Golden Alwafi program folder for users and everyone. This has solved the problem.  I had one other little hitch and this was Autodesk DWG TrueViewer 2007 tried to reinstall everytime that i started Golden Al Wafi, the user didn't need this program so i uninstalled this program and all is good.

Golden Al-Wafi error solved!

Right-click the link in your desktop. Click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, then check the Run this program in compatibility mode for, then select Windows 98 / Windows ME.

I hope this helped!
