Multiple users getting access to a program with XP?

I have Win XP. I have 3 user accounts setup. I have a program called Print Shop Premier Edition ver. 5.0 It is an older program that I got years ago. I have no problem using it since I am the admin user, my problem is one of the other users needs to use it also and can't seem to access it. Is there any help for this problem? Thanks.

Did you install it in a location they cannot access?

Well, I installed it just when I was logged in. Is there another way to do it. I am not sure if that is the answer you are looking for.

Where did you install it to? Is that location accessible to anyone?

What happens when they try to access it?

Right Click on the Icon, Then properties, then security.
( This is on XP Pro - I'm not sure if the Home version is the same).

You may have to do the same thing to the folder the program is installed on. (Right click, Properties, Security)

Some programs need to write to the directory it was installed in - and the user may not have privileges to do this.

According to Windows Help, "... user level permissions often do not allow the user to successfully run legacy applications. The members of the Users group are only guaranteed to be able to run programs that have been certified for Windows."

Here's the MS Document that explains it in full.

Click Start/Control Panel/UserAccounts to make any changes.
