non admin users

Hi

I am sure this must have cropped up before, but I cannot find an answer...

I have calibre library in my documents, as admin user on pc. However, pc is shared and i want my wife to use calibre from her user account, (non admin) however, despite the desktop icon being on her desk, she cannot open calibre....

any thoughts?

thanks

Does she have read/write access to the library and Calibre's program folder?

I am thinking the Library should be in "Shared Documents" (or other, non-private folder)

I am also thinking that the user(id) folder needs to be created for that user to contain the settings.

I am not sure what happens IF you leave Caliber running, then switch users

Bad Things, I'd suspect. That would amount to two Calibre instances trying to access the same library.
