Craig’s AppList


Craig’s AppList
. I’ve been
taking the plunge
lately and trying to do development
as a non-administrator. It’s been…interesting. I’m starting to
get used to it now, but what has been most interesting is the list
of applications that don’t work, or only work with modifications.
I’ve posted
this list, which contains all the apps I’ve tried
to set up so far, and whether or not they run in my new non-admin
lifestyle.

My experiences have been a little different to Craig’s:

  • WinKey
    I started running this the other day after having seen Craig blog
    about it – I hadn’t realised it didn’t allow you to update it since
    I had installed and configured it as an administrator and then just
    been using it without changing settings since. I’d put this under
    the “Sort of” category, as long as you’ve got your settings already
    defined.
  • WinAmp
    I didn’t like WinAmp 3, so I went back to v2.81 long ago and this
    runs fine so maybe it isn’t security related.
  • ActiveSync
    I’m syncing my Smartphone just fine for calendar, contacts, and
    tasks.
  • UrlRun
    I haven’t had any problems with this – seems to work
    fine.
