On my computer, i have a restricted user. so when first installed it on my computer it did not work well on my restricted user(some filters did not work). So i installed composite lab on my flash drive and that helps a little bit( i thinks some filters still dont work.).
But does any one have any ideas on how to get this program to work on restricted user?

The program is designed to be installed and run from an administrator account, so that's how I'd recommend using it. Running it from a restricted account could lead to restrictions in how it can be used.

Out of curiosity, why are you using a restricted account? Is it a work computer, or is it your own?

The reason I ask is because I'm an IT engineer and we never allow users to have admin rights on computers that we assign to them. It just causes all kinds of problems and creates headaches for tech staff when people can install whatever they want and then wonder why something no longer works. If this is a work computer, you should respect their policies.

Of course if it's your computer, just ignore everything I said smile

no, im 16 and it is my dad's computer, and he wants parental control on the internet so he gave me restricted user. but if i have admin i could uninstall them. Of course i would not do that cause he would delete my user and i would have nothing. But thats why i i dont have admin. I see his view and understand but it is very annoying running this software on restricted user. i liked clp so much i bought elp today. i will have to install that on my flash drive too.



Also not having admin has downs too. on macs when you cant do something you have to have admin type in password. that gets annoying.



thanks

That's understandable, and it's cool that you are respecting your dad's wishes.

Unfortunately, as Tarn said, you really need full admin priveleges for everything to work correctly, so you may need to do the best you can with the flash drive.

We just got windows parallels, which we put on my user and installed the windows version of clp and elp. It actually works better and faster. I have administrator on parallels while my mac users is restricted.


thanks :)
