Admin setting?
 
I have 2 account on my PC. 1 Admin and 1 regular user. I have a game on my
D drive that I cannot run unless I am in Admin mode. Whenever I try to launch
the game a a regular user nothing happens. I used to be able to run it in
either mode but something changed and I am unable to figure out what it is.
Anyone have any ideas? Thanks........

Thanks for the reply. I dragged the whole folder to the Shared Folder, but it was not really evident on what to do in modifying the registry permissions. I did not see a folder in the registry setting that specified or differentiated users. After reading this "Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on your computer," I didn't trust my noobish ability, so I didn't mess with it.

Any other ideas?

You would have to tell us what is your SO release..

With Vista there are some improvements that blocks an user from run
administrator mode applications...
