Applications not loading in secondary accounts

Hi,

I'm running windows 7 home premium on a desktop computer with removable drives and two raid array drives.  

Some of my applications which load and run using my primary account will not load and run in my secondary account.  This is the case when I have a given app running in my primary account but will not run when I log into my secondary account.

In addition there is a system enhancement tool from Gigabyte which is called Easy Tune 5.  I use the app to monitor system temperatures and control fan speeds.

I get the pop up message "Can not open the Service Control Module"  when I try and run this app in my secondary account even though it was running in my primary account.

If I repeat the load attempt several times, Easy Tune 5 will eventually  load and run following the pop up message.  If the app is not running the processor fan speed runs at a slower speed.

Thanks,
howie

some programs install per user and others per machine.. that is the reason why.. sometimes when you install a program you get the option to install for all users or just me

Is there a way to correct this.   I try to run them as administrator but that doesn't seem to work.  I quess I'll have to reinstall the apps.

The question is:  If I install my apps in the primary account and then create a secondary account why do some programs load and others do not.   And if it is because they install as just me,  then all subsequently created accounts will not be able to load the programs?

That seems a bit sloppy, doesn't it??

Thanks for your help,

Well it is not something you have control over.  It is something defined by the author of the program when they setup the installation package.
