BSPlayer should be installed to "All users" start
Right now, when a user installed BSplayer, the shortcut in Start menu is only accessible by the one who installed it. This is because the directory which contains the shortcut is created inside
C:\Documents and Settings\<user_who_installed>\[localised Start Menu]\[localised Program]\

But in Win2000, WinXP and Windows Server 2003 (and possibly for the upcoming Windows Vista), it is advised to create shortcuts/directories inside the
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\[localised Start Menu]\[localised Program]\

In this way, anyone who logs into the system could see that such program is installed.

NB: There's an equivalent path in Win NT4 for all users, but since I don't have it right now, I can't confirm where it is.

I'll make BS.Player authors aware of this issue, probably it will be better to add an option in the installer to let the user the choice to install it for All users or just for the current one (as it is with many other programs out there) :wink:


Install this application for:

o Anyone who uses this computer
o Only for you (USER_NAME)
