Well I'm so sorry my desktop broke, and that the suggestions and discussion on the issue which helpful people like Tom have made have disturbed your life!

My profuse appologies! I should've considdered your time before having my desktop break.

Oh, and not to mention the politeness of me thanking those who's suggestions have been helpful, ---- how careless and nasty of me of to offer my thanks.

Btw, if you have no interest in a thread, don't read it! it's the moderators job to say when a thread has or has not continued beyond it's time.

Dark.

It just shows that obviously all the Audiogame dev's had their heads screwed on regarding user accounts.

About multi-user environments in general, i personally would give a lot to have precisely the opposite option.

I've always used my own computers myself, and been the only person doing so. In fact other than buisnesses or institutional networks I'd always advocate one person use their own computer if at all possible sinse that way they get most familiar with things (my mum, who is a novice computer user, and my brother who is very advance had extreme problems in this manner when they attempted to share a desktop using multiple accounts).

My mum as a consequence has no idea of basic file structure or where things are stored, ---- or even how to open documents without directly using ms word.

Some of my weerder dosbox style programs i think I'm going to have to reinstall rather than playing hunt the run file, ---- though this is certainly less of a pest than it might have been.

I'm most impressed with Hal, which seems to be able to run independently of all user account shinanigans, ---- despite the orphius issue.

I even managed to run it in default windows profile.

Beware the grue!

Hi Dark,
Glad to see you have the problem under control. As for the missing icons there really isn't anything strange about that really. Some programs install icons to your local user account's start menu folder rather than globally to the default start menu folder. The end result is if you create a new account the icons come up missing. The easiest way to fix that little problem is to copy those icons from the local start menu folder to the default "all users" start menu folder. Once you do that it doesn't matter if you have 1 or 100 user accounts they all have access to the icons. As it happens you aren't the only one that has user account woes in this area. Unlike Linux developers that always assumes a multiuser environment far too many Windows developers program software for a single user environment. For those of us who run Windows in a multiuser environment it gets to be a pain, because there really isn't any excuse to program software for a single user environment. With the release of Vista and Windows 7 Microsoft beginning to kick developers in the butt, and letting them get use to the idea of programming for a multiuser environment. The only problem is it is hard to break developers of bad habbits formed ages ago.

Smile.
