I need WinXP users to access PTA 2002 as limited user, NOT PowerUser

I need WinXP users to access PTA 2002 as limited user, NOT PowerUser

(OP)
We have about 2500 students using our labs. We are using Novell 6 server with WinXP Pro workstation. I have installed PTA Complete 2002 on the workstations, but only PowerUser and Administrator can launch Peachtree. This is unacceptable in our educational environment. There is no way that I can give students Power User or Administator rights on the workstations. From previous experience, it's impossible to keep up with the excessive amount of workstation maintenance required due to rights

The problem is...
I need "limited" users to be able to launch and use Peachtree.

Sharing the Peachw folder doesn't work. Are there any other folders or files that need to be shared as well? Is there a registry setting that can solve this problem? Does Peachtree need to write to a location that limited user can't access?

Thank you for any help you can offer!
