View Full Version : Run BW 5 w/ out admin rights (hangs on "Cleaning House")

Hey,

I am trying to configure BibleWorks 5 to run for users without
administrative right. I've done it before, but I can't remember what
permissions had to be changed. I thought they needed write permission
to C:\windows\bw{500,dir}.ini, but that doesn't help. Every time the
unprivileged user tries to close the program it hangs on the "Cleaning
House" dialogue box. Any suggestions that might jog my memory would be
much appreciated.

Hello Again,

I remembered. The program had to be patched first which can only be done through the UI it seems. (I'm sure glad I only have one copy of this app to update and not a 100. What a sysadmin nightmare.) After patching it, I had to give the unprivileged users write permission to the configuration files in C:\windows.

Thanks anyway, gang.
