    Pro Desktop

    I am installing Pro Desktop v8 on to the server and then a shortcut on the users desktop. I can run the software from the server. But when i run it from the workstation the startup screen loads as if the program is loading then just disaapears.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I think you are going to have to install the application in each workstation either by imaging or msi delivery.

    I seriously doubt a cad program would work running from a share.

    It works fine on our admin domain.

    I know the old version of pro desktop really did not like it if there was not a default printer installed - similar sort of symptoms to this.

    Re: Pro Desktop

    yes i can, so that suggests it a policy its not security permissions because i checked and they are the same as the admin domain which works.

    So i wonder what would it be in the group policy stopping it.

    Re: Pro Desktop

    I think you may find it is a permissions issue. have you ran REGMON and FILEMON under staff and studdent accounts? This should flag up any dennied access permissions to the reg and folder/files.

    Re: Pro Desktop

    If i login as administrator run the software then login as a pupil the software will run no problems. I have restarted the machine logged back on as a pupil and the software still loads.

    What is causing me to log in as administrator before the software loads on a pupil account????

    Re: Pro Desktop

    is the application data stored on the machine locally, or on the server? by logging on as admin you are updating the application data folder, whre as the student account wont be allowed to do so.

    Re: Pro Desktop

    Code:
    "c:\program files\ptc\prodesktop 8.0\program\prod.exe" /regserver
    
    cd c:\program files\ptc\prodesktop 8.0\program
    
    prod.exe
    
    exit
    That's what i put into a batch file and set it up as the shortcut to run ProD in the start menu. It runs the line to do the regserver thing and then loads the program itself. That fixed our problems with ProD.

    Just be thankful you're not dealing with Pro Engineer....that's complicated with license servers and stuff *Sigh*
