Question Windows XP Acount Addition?

My school has been trying to add several new accounts to the computers in our computer lab. In the end there will be one account for each period of the day and all of them will be limited accounts. However we have encountered a problem, in that, when we add these accounts several programs will not operate on them. In particular is the keyboarding program, Mavis Beacon 9 and Adobe PageMaker 6.5. When we install these programs they are only accessible from the Administrator accounts. When we try to run them from the limited accounts they say that they cannot find the registry settings. How can I get these programs to run in the limited accounts? If you need any further info then, please, do ask.
