Have sorted out the main problems with the installations and am now getting all users on all computers up and running.

When I install on a different user account on the same Mac I get these two messages when I am starting up.

The user is connected to the internet and has full admin rights.

Any ideas what could be wrong?

This is stopping certain users using 2017 right now and it is becoming a bit of a pain....

If you are using windows computers then running VW2017 as administrator (to be set in the properties tab of the shortcut or the actual program) will solve this problem for now. They're working on a fix to be included in SP1 but that can take a few weeks according to @JimW

Edit: overlooked you are using a Mac, but the above does work on windows so if you have access to a windows machine as well you could try using that if you want to be able to update libraries at startup.
