  1. Install application for all users


    Hi all,


    I've installed an application that gets installed in a secure folder. One where you need admin credentials to remove. The problem is I would like this application to launch in the system tray when other accounts are logged in. Currently it doesn't start the application in the tray when standard users log into their account. How can I force this from the admin side so the standard users have it launch when they log in. I do not want the standard user accounts to be able to prevent the launch of the program.


    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Installing Applications to Select User Accounts

    Hi Lucas,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are trying to avoid the access of all the application in all users. We will help you try resolving this issue.

    I suggest you to check while installing any software it gives an option to install on all users or any particular user only.

    However this would be application specific to manufacturer.

    You can try following the below steps also and check if it helps.

    • When you install the software or an application, it makes a shortcut or copy to the public folder where all the users can access the application.
    • Open C:\ Drive and select Users.
    • Select Public, select the files which you don't want to be used by other users and delete the files or Cut and paste in Admin account folder.
    Note: To perform this steps be logged into Admin user.

    Keep us posted to help you better.

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.

    Install application for all users

    "Application Install install package failure!" while installing 13.9

    Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and MSI 6970 Lightning.

    I was upgrading from 13.4 after I did a clean uninstall with AMD Catalyst Install Manager.

    Doesn't say what installation failed in the install log. Everything in the log says Success but at the very bottom it says "Application Install: install package failure!" but doesn't say what failed to install.

    I only install video drivers and no CCC.

    The only thing I noticed is AMD Catalyst Install Manager is not listed in my programs list.
