Future Users access to Applications.

I am setting up a system [XP w SP2] for a Granddaughter [sixth grade]. She is currently the only user, and has full administrator privileges [made the hidden administrator account with password and parents only one with the password in order to still have parental "control"]. It's a Birthday gift, so initially it would seem nice to have her be the only user.

I am going to install Office Professional on it today or tomorrow:

1. I assume that she will likely "allow" her sister and parents to become users. When that happens will they have access to Office Pro in their accounts automatically??? OR [depending on this answer]

2. If I added the other users now, is there anything that I have to do to have Office Pro available for all users?

I'm in PA she's in OR.

When I installed Office Pro 2003

I got a message about allowing it to be used by only me or anyone using this computer. I picked anyone using this computer even though I am the only user.

The Wonderful World of All Users

Right click the start menu, and select "Open All Users". This will get you to a special universal start menu listing. Anything you place here, will show up on ALL users' start menus; present AND future alike.

So, if for some reason a program doesn't show up in a new users' start menu, just move it from one user's profile to All Users.
