Of course I did, but I responded to what you wrote - not what you meant.
You said "If you had xp pro" this means exactly the same as "you don't have XP Pro, but if you did"... As I said I did, that led me to believe you hadn't read my post properly.
Had you instead said "If you HAVE xp pro", then it has a totally different meaning and there wouldn't have been any confusion.
English is my first language and I often forget that this is not true for everyone, so my apologies if English isn't your first language.
Your statement that 'the program stinks' isn't helpful and has no basis - not that it matters to be honest, but it implies that my problem was caused by the software.
As it works fine on all the other XP Pro machines I've installed it on, but not mine, this suggests that it's my system which has the problem - not the software.
Had it required the user to be Administrator on all machines it was installed on then I would have agreed with you and said yes, it does stink! :)
As such, as I said in my first post, I wanted to know where to look in XP to fix the root problem in case it happens again with any other programs I install.
I've checked the permissions by the way and they are as they should be.
I didn't mention what the program was before as I didn't think it had any relevance, but it's DMX lighting rig controller software.
Since starting this thread, I've done a bit of research and this problem in XP appears to be quite common, but no-one seems to have a definitive answer. So, it looks like I'm going to have to bite the bullet and re-install XP to fix it.
