Normal user access to restricted devices; how-to?

Posted: 09-08-2003, 07:58 PM
I am running a Windows XP Pro installation (eng) with SP1
installed. On my system, there are 3 normal user accounts
and 1 administrator account. The administrator account has
of course no problems accessing for instance the CD/DVD-
burner and the SCSI scanner. Normal users (and Power
users) however are uanble to access these devices.

How do I enable access to these restricted devices to
users that does not belong to the administrators group?

/ Regards, Peter

Reinstall programs as administrator (right click setup.exe
or equivelant and select RUN AS, then choose admin). The
rest is self explanatory.
