I am facing a problem with the MSOffice2k Package. When i tried to open the Organizational chart in the power point, with the admin credentials it is working fine. but with the test user it is throwing an error "Unable to load MS Organization Chart, Press F1 for help".

This is because as soon as we launch the power point Organizational Chart it will create 2 files MSOClip.232 and MSOPrefs.232 in the Windows folder. As the normal user dont have the credentials on the Windows folder it failed to create.

So i captured those two files and included them in the MSI. And gave Everyone Full control except Delete. But now the problem is once the Admin of the machiene opens the Organizational chart the permissions on the 2 files are Overwritten and No more "Everyone" is having the permissions. So the application again fails for the Normal User.

It would be Great if any one helps me out in this Issue...

Hi I had the same problems some years ago, didn't work as a "user" the solution was to give the user more rights in the registry.
That was on Windows 2000 Pro Sp4 and Office 2000 Pro SP2 i think
I have a exe file that copies theese files and make i works as user - if you are interested
