Windows 7 non-Administrative users - what do they need?

I am upgrading my workstations from GW7 client to GW2012 on Windows 7. They don't have a lot of rights at all (by design) so I run the installation of all software as Administrator.

This works for the GW7 client, but only the Administrator can run the GW 2012 client. It installs without any errors, and Notify starts and runs.

For all other users, they get "GroupWise is not properly installed. Call your system administrator" but I've tried calling myself, and been of no help at all.

Does anyone have easy to follow instructions for allowing regular users to run (but not mess with) the GW 2012 client on Windows 7? Or is there something really simple I'm missing?

Re: Windows 7 non-Administrative users - what do they need?

Update - It turned out to be a registry problem (not permissions as suggested by Novell support). I found a Cool Solutions document Cool Solutions: Troubleshooting GroupWise 7 Registry Key Problems that had the solution for GW7 that worked for me (removing the first registry key mentioned) so now it's working fine and I can finish my upgrade. 🙂
