Argh!!! I have installed Powerdesig

Argh!!! I have installed Powerdesig

Argh!!! I have installed Powerdesig

Argh!!! I have installed Powerdesigner 9.5 on a new PC (xp Pro) under the administrator account (trying to build an image to port to other identical PCs), but when a domain user logs in, they can open pd95 just fine and create a physical data model, but they cannot script it. Gives errors like scripting DLLs are not found and script generation will be aborted. I know this has something to do with the admin / user permissions conflict in xp. I even resorted to uninstalling pd from the admin account, logging in as a domain user and reinstalling there. I get some crap during installation about how 4 dlls couldn't be loaded...i tried registering them manually but regsvr32 returns with an failure error. If anyone has any pointed suggestions...pls relieve me. I have already spent about a week on this.  I will post exact error msgs and dll names tomorrow when i get in if anyone would find it helpful.


RE: Argh!!! I have installed Powerdesig

ok, i think i resolved my own issue. It appears that i had to log in as the local admin and copy the domain user's profile to the "Defualt User" specifying "Everyone" so that any domain user logging into the box will get the same profile. THis resolved the powerdesigner issue, but when any domain user logs in (other than the one that installed all the applications), it appears that a similar problem pops up when trying to open a vb app that references sheridan controls sscala32.ocx, along with a couple other ocx's. Argh, this is driving me insane. I tried to re-register the ocxs using regsvr32 but it fails saying "DLLRegisterServer in sscala32.ocx failed. Return code was 0x80040200". THis is so weird -- the domain user who installed all the apps can run it fine, and re-register the ocx if need be, but the other domain users cannot run apps with those ocx's and can't even re-register them. WHat gives? This seems to be an XP user profile issue..
