    Hi
    Just installed GSS on My WinXp64 machine which i have to share with the mrs. Since the installation she cannot access her user profile. She clicks her icon but it does nothing, I have to log totally off my account then she can get in. any suggestions to cure this ? ( apart from dont let her use the pc :D )

    Thanks

    I have a similar situation. With or without 'fast user switching' activated, with another admin profile, if I just log off (or use FUS)... choosing either icon just flashes that desktop, then says 'saving preferences' then 'logging off'... and back to just the two icons. I have to restart to get back into either account. XP Pro.

    Thanks... Quinn

    Hi, crashuk2k1

    I do not know if these posts will be of any help [from about #6 or 7 down] Re: Blocking something at shutdown, because fast user switching is of a kind of shutdown it might just might be of some help.

    So you are getting a double nagging then one from the Wife, and one from a Ghost. :D

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:

    Hi Crash,

    It has been mentioned a few times before, but GSS doesn't work correctly with Fast User Switching, or multiple accounts in any fashion which would be called "user friendly". Alternatively, try shutting down the GUI and making sure all the rules in the .DEFAULT are set to "Ask user / allow" (except self termination), then try letting your wife log in. It should work in this case, just not very well.
