Restrict Some Users From Burning

Question

This is a standalone machine

I have installed Roxio Creator Business HD v10.0.

 

I need to restrict users from burning CD’s but allow administrators and specific users the ability.

I was able to remove the user account from the executable and still maintain the administrator ability to use the application.

 

I then created a user account and added it to the admin group but the user is unable to run the application.

 

Looking for ideas around this issue.

So I have this stand alone machine loaded with Windows7 and Roxio software.

 

The requirement for burning software is that only administrators or members of the admin group should be allowed to burn software.

 

When the machine had Win XP it was easy remove the user group and add specific user to the admin group Win7 is more secure?

I asked you to explain this in detail please?

On my first attempt I found the Roxio .exe file restrict the users from using the application by removing them from the security but I must have incorrectly removed them because I also disabled the administrators from running the program.

 

I did it correctly the second time and the users were restricted and the administrators were able to run the application.

 

I now want to allow only specific users access to the Roxio.exe file so I created a user and added her to the administrators group.

The user is not able to run the Roxio.exe.

Message – “Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to ace the item.”

Wow, thanks Digital Guru for this information and Microsoft for such an elegant and logical way to do this.

Great help you ‘da man’.

 

When the user tries to run the .exe a warning message appears good.

 

I do get another warning (c:\ngoslog) but it does not seem to effect anything on the user login.

Thanks

Is Creator Business HD 10.0 compatible with Windows 7? Most versions of Creator 10 which have been modified to run in Windows 7 have been called version 10.3

 

Just as a 'heads-up', I don't see yours on the Updated part of the Compatibility list, and they say that anything not on that list will have problems with Windows 7.
