Lately I've been needing to play with limiting user rights on some machines, UAC is turned on. We use Vista, and we also use Yahoo Messenger. When I use Yahoo Messenger as an Administrator, everything works fine.
However, when I use Yahoo Messenger under a standard user account, nothing happens. YahooMessenger.exe shows as starting as my user, but no window for me to login or the like.
I've tried to bypass this by having the Task Scheduler start the program as my administrative user at login, but it starts at in Session 0 (and thus not interactive with my desktop).
Any suggestions for allowing the people that use this computer to simply use Yahoo Messenger without giving them administrator access to everything else, as well?
Update: I used
cacls on the Yahoo Messenger folder to give the standard user full control of that folder. This had no effect.
