Hi,

If filemon isn't showing you anything, i.e. no file not found or access
denied (you CAN set filters), then you're probably looking at a DLL issue,
either where a DLL isn't registered globally, or where the DLL isn't being
found in a non-admin user's search path (was change user /install mode
used?).

Also had an issue recently where an application failed for some users
because of their default printer. Basically the app died after loading a
particular printer driver DLL. Had to set the filemon filter on both the app
AND explorer.exe to get that one.

Regards,

Rick

users ver 4.0



Metaframe XP (actually both-it's mixed mode)
Vendor was in over the weekend to put up the version 4 of HR perspective.
Short story ends with it doesn't get past a login screen unless you are an
admin user.  I've tried filemon to see what fails and the items that fail
appear to have correct permissions.

(also freeware version of filemon gives 40 pages of data making it nearly
impossible to pin down specifics)

I'm leaning towards permissions since some child process of HRLOGON is
obviously what fails. (:I get to the login and then after that it dies) Also
if I put in a bogus user name the system does get far enough to tell me
(that name/password ) is wrong.

I've looked at user windows directory, various permissions and don't have
much more clues.  Will start looking at registry keys and permissions next.

Respond to postmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx if you have any ideas.  (and yes
obviously to the list)

Thank goodness payroll works, but Monday is likely to be a BAD day.   I
believe Jim K has run HR perspective, but haven't seen much else on the
list.

I do not relish 12 hour days on Sundays,,,,it's going to be a long week.
