Different OSX user accounts cause problems


I created a second OSX user account that I use when at a client's office and has access only to the client's files, so that if anyone snoops through my files while I'm away from my desk, they won't see any private files. However, I've noticed that when I'm logged in under this account, not all VW functions work properly. Specifically, the DXF import always fails. If I log out and then log in with my admin password, then VW imports the files just fine. I assume that there is probably something wrong with the file permissions in some of the VW application files, but I have no idea what to check. Any ideas?

(I'm using version 11.5.0 despite the info below.)

I had earlier tried setting all the Vectorworks files to full access for everyone in the finder's Get Info window, but it didn't work.

Finally, I re-installed Vectorworks, and then set its folder and all enclosed files to full access for everyone. Now it works on all OS accounts.
