1. I have set an account as a limited user in Windows XP. It has to temporarily run as an administrator when he wants to install a program. Most of the time it works but I encountered a few cases where the programs have problems or simply doesn't run in limited user account. What can I do to fix or minimize those problems?

2. Sometimes a program installs but only install on that user, in this case, it would be the administrator, so the limited-user account can't run that program. What can I do to instruct the program to install on all users? Thank you.

Normally a program will ask you during the installation process if that program is only for you (administrator) or for Everyone else. Say everyone else and you won't have this problem, but you do have to install them under the Admin account.

If it were the case I wouldn't need ask.
It just doesn't have this option at all. That's why some programs install.
