Why AIM+ only work on the C drive


Hey,I downloaded AIM+ onto the C drive.The problem is...is that it only works on my account and my dad's account, but not anyone else's in my family.If I try to open it on another account,an error message comes up saying:AIM+registry settings corrupt, please reinstall to fix the problem.I've reinstalled it, but the same thing happens.Any reason why it doesn't work on all of the accounts?any help would be fine.thanks!

Usually reinstalling does not help One suggestion was to copy the AIM values from the registry to the new account's registry file, since it's already installed.

Log onto the account that works

Next go to Start, Run, type in "regedit" amd click OK

Next expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER :: Software and highlight "Big-O" go to file :: export and save it as big-o.reg in a place thats easy to remember (like C:/Program Files/AIM )

Now log off, and log into the account which gives you the error

Use explorer to find the .reg file you made

Double click on it and append it to the registry.
