    Hello, Dudes!

    I recently have installed Windows XP on my system. Now problem is that Google Chrome and Adobe Flash Player Active X both programmes are not driving on Limited Account (they are showing their icons too) but all other programmes are running fine at Limited Account. These two programs are running fine on Admin Account only. So please tell me what can be the reason of that?

    Regards,

    Happpy.

    Have you tried this...


    "While logged on as an administrator, click Start and Run, type CMD and click OK to open a command prompt. Copy & paste type the following commands and press Enter after each.

    Cacls %WinDir%\System32\Macromed\*.* /E /T /P system:F
    Cacls %WinDir%\System32\Macromed\*.* /E /T /P users:F

    Log on to a limited account and test whether Flash content plays correctly?"

    and Google Chrome

    chrome installs just for the user account it was installed in, so you have to install it for each user account.

    Sorry i thought you were on NTFS, try and locate the "Macromed folder" on your fat32 installation and amend the command to match?

    I've done it. One thing you told me was great:



    I installed chrome separately there (in separate login) and the chrome itself installed Adobe Flash Active X. Question resolved. Thanks.
