Installation Issues

Question: I have installed the Windows version of the ration formulation program onto the lab computers logging as Administrator. When a student with no Admin privilege logs onto the computer, the feed libraries do not show any feeds and the user can not select any feed from these empty libraries.

Answer: Give the Everyone user the full control of the ration folder by following these steps:

  1. Log onto the computer as Administrator.
  2. Run the Windows Explore and locate the folder containing the ration program.
  3. Right click on this folder. A menu appears.
  4. Select the "Properties" option from this menu. A dialog box appears.
  5. Click the "Security" tab. Another dialog box appears.
  6. Click the "Add" button. Another dialog box appears.
  7. Type "Everyone" in the slot and click the OK button. You will be back to the previous dialog box.
  8. Select the "Everyone" entry and give him the "Full Control" privilege.
