I have not verified this method but it was what I did for Windows 2000 and NT 4.
Move the user into the admin group, run word, then move them back out to let Office do its needed install.
I installed office 2000 in winxp home , did the necessary updates , but only the administrator and one other user are able to use Word.I would like to give users (limited access) without giving them admin privileges.
When one of these users try to use Word , the office installation routine starts , asking for the installation media......error 1706 and Word will not start.At first Word would start up only for admin so i uninstalled , reinstalled in the shared folder and could gain access for one user , the one whose name i included during the installation (no admin privileges).
I am using winXP home edition french ,servicepack2.thank you for the help.
