A customer has reported being able to run an application as
System Administrator but not as an ordinary user. I think this is
because Director writes some temporary files to the Windows system
folder which are deleted at the end of the session. In order for
the projector to run users need rights to allow these files to be
created. Is there any way round this (if the diagnosis is correct)
i.e. getting the files written elsewhere or any other way round it.
Director is unpacking into the temp folder (Documents and
settings/username/locale settings/temp). Any user should be allowed
to write there. Are you using any non-standard xtras? Can you
verify this on your computer? What system does your customer use
(Vista, XP, 2k, NT, 3.11)?
You can avoid this unpacking by providing all files in the
xtras folder (all xtras and the 4 dlls Dirapi.dll, Iml32.dll,
msvcrt.dll, Proj.dll ) and using a fast start projector.
