    "Works cannot complete the task"

    In Windows XP home, "limited" users get messages like the
    above when opening or closing Works applications. The
    applications still work when the messages are closed. If
    the limited user acount is changed to a full access user
    account the problem goes away. I suspect a file
    protection problem, but whith what? Any ideas anyone?

    Where are the users trying to save their files? I suspect they're trying to
    save them in the Works installation folder, in which only full users can
    write. Have them save to their "My Doents" folder or the "Shared
    Doents" folder. They should have no trouble with that.
