vrf Windows user issue (?)

Question asked by kathy_wright_ca on Aug 12, 2004
<DIV>One of the things we've done to overcome similar, but less dramatic, problems in Win2K and XP is to use the COMPATWS.INF security template.  This relaxes the security for regular users somewhat, similar to how it was for NT.</DIV><DIV> </DIV><DIV>-- Kathy</DIV><DIV> </DIV><DIV> </DIV><DIV><BR><B><I>Rufus Warren |rwarren@amti.net></I></B> wrote:</DIV><BLOCKQUOTE class=replbq style="PADDING-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; BORDER-LEFT: #1010ff 2px solid">Hmmmmm, this could be a number of things.<BR><BR>1.

I then added it to the machine's startup folder<BR>for a Power User auto-logon. Restarting the machine resulted in an attempt<BR>to run the application but there were substantial problems.<BR><BR>Since then I have discovered that Vee Runtime and Vee development will not<BR>run on this machine unless an "administrator" is logged on. There are no<BR>error messages and the Vee applications are clearly attempting to work.<BR>Typical problems are: Panel "Label" boxes show but there is no text. OK<BR>buttons are present but they also have no text and they don't work. Many<BR>ActiveX objects seem to be working properly (based upon their displayed<BR>components) but a "ListView" object has a strange font (italics with a<BR>strike-through). The applications are not running and the Task Manager must<BR>be used to get them off the screen. The panel view title bar is OK<BR>including the lettering. <BR><BR >When starting in the development mode everything comes up normally but<BR>quickly everything below the top menu switches to a gray box with a diagonal<BR>black line from top left to bottom right. The top menu continues to look<BR>normal but the buttons do not work. The Task Manager is the only way out.<BR><BR>All non-Vee applications running on this machine act normally and the Vee<BR>applications are fine if I log on as administrator.<BR><BR>The machine's video settings appear to be identical for all users.<BR><BR>Thoughts?<BR><BR>Barrie<BR>whoi<BR><BR><BR>---<BR>You are currently subscribed to vrf as: rwarren@amti.net To subscribe send a<BR>blank email to "join-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To unsubscribe send a blank email to "leave-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To send messages to this mailing list, email "vrf@agilent.com". <BR>If you need help with the mailing list send a message to<BR>"owner-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR><BR><BR>---<BR>You are currently subscribed  to vrf as: kathy_wright_ca@yahoo.com<BR>To subscribe send a blank email to "join-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To unsubscribe send a blank email to "leave-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR>To send messages to this mailing list, email "vrf@agilent.com". <BR>If you need help with the mailing list send a message to "owner-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".<BR></BLOCKQUOTE>---You are currently subscribed to vrf as: rsb@soco.agilent.comTo subscribe send a blank email to "join-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".To unsubscribe send a blank email to "leave-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".To send messages to this mailing list,  email "vrf@agilent.com".  If you need help with the mailing list send a message to "owner-vrf@it.lists.it.agilent.com".
