View Full Version : GFX 5200 + Gamma + WinXP + non-admin user

06-09-03, 10:46 PM
I have Windows XP Pro with a PNY GeForceFX 5200.
I want to setup the gamma for all games for all the winXP users.

I have some users(litle brothers) that does not have administrator rights, so I want to know how to configure the gamma setting for them.

I configured the gamma in the Administrator session but when another user start it session, the screen goes to the default gamma setting and all is dark again.

I hope there is an easy way to do this.

I'm looking for some registry tweaks. Better if I don't need to run any program at startup.
An also, don't tell me to configure the gamma in every game ;)
I want a default gamma like the one in *ouch* ATI's *ouch* driver.

Ohh... good question!! :D

Open a Command Prompt and then type

C:\>runas /user:<YOUR_MACHINE>\Administrator "rundll32 shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL %SystemRoot%\system32\desk.cpl"

and that should launch the control panel using Administrator credentials. Hopefully it'll update the current user and not the Administrator's account.
