    Program permissions based on User Permissions?

    I have a windows user that won't open a certain program, but if I change to a different user on the same machine, it will open. The software support team says there is an issue with the user profile permissions not allowing the program to open fulling under the USER 1 login... which he supports by saying it works with USER 2. Any idea how to fix USER 1 permissions like he's saying? USER 1 is my main profile with everything attached to it... It'd be a pain to try to rebuild it, reinstall programs, etc. ThanksI google app permissions and it goes on about privacy, that's not what I'm talking abou

  2. No permissions


    I would suggest you to right click on the user's folder for your profile and check if the permissions shows as "read only'. If this is the case, it might be causing the issue. In this case, I would suggest you to go to C:\User folder, right click on the
    folder with your username and follow these steps:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click Ok.
    This does a one-time action that replaces the security on all the files/subfolders. It’s one-time, so you won’t find that box checked if you peek at it later. Try these steps and let us know the results for further assistance.
