Google Earth limit user error

Hello,

When I login as a limited user and try and start google earth. I get the attached error.

 Error on start up
I have created a vbs file that script on login that apply the following reg edits but the error still comes up. The H drive letter is a map drive that the user has full access to.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Earth Plus]
"CachePath"="H:\\"

I have also tried creating a group policy that edits the registry but this does not fix the issue either. The computer that are having the issue are windows 7 64bit.

Any ideas how to fix this?

As this is issue happens on a network account. "mklink /J "C:\Users\{username}\AppData\LocalLow\Google\GoogleEarth" "S:\GoogleEarthCache\GoogleEarth"" Will not work as every user would have to do this and they can not as they are limited user. The regedit fix i have already tried 2 ways but they did not work.

The mklink fix will not work as that fix has to be done for each user and that can not really be used when you got more then around 10 users. I have already tried the GP way using registry fix.

if you make a script for below command & put it in logon script for users in GP it will work

mklink /J "C:\Users\{username}\AppData\LocalLow\Google\GoogleEarth" S:\GoogleEarthCache\GoogleEarth"

use %username% variable variable in windows.
