Another Xp query....

Ive installed a game for my daughter (the simms - heaven help us!) whilst logged in as myself (administator), however when she or my wife log in using there profile they cannot see the folder in there programs menu. I have copied the program folder into there 'documents & settings' folder under 'start menu' & yet they still cannot see it to access.
All other software i have installed can be seen by all users & i would of thought this would be usual, is there something i am not doing correctly?

any advice appreciated, thanks in advance

Try copying it here ...

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs

you may also need to change the rights on c:\program files\the sims so that a user can access it.

Ive seen this happen before and as buzzons says changing the rights for the folder in question sorted it out

Copying to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs sorted the problem. Thanks for the comments.
