Dreamcard under simple user

  Here's a question for all of you Mac OS X users out there.  I am
trying to get a lab set up to teach Revolution in.  We are going to be
using Dreamcard under OS X 10.3.  Because of district policy, we have
to run under a limited user.  We have not yet bought the licenses, so
I figured we could use the trial version for a few classes.  I got a
trial license key, and installed Revolution on the computers while
running as an administrator and entered the license key.  We then set
up the user accounts so that they would be able to start Revolution
and logged in as the limited user.  However, every time we tried,
Revolution did not show up in the list of available programs.  The IT
guy there told me that we could not run trial versions of software
under limited users.
  Now, that is not a problem if Dreamcard will start up fine when we
get the actual license keys.  However, I want to be sure that it will
work before I go out there again and spend several hours trying to get
it to work.  Is there anyone out there that has gotten Revolution to
run successfully under a limited user in OS 10.3?
  Now, when I say limited user, I mean the really limited user.  I am
not sure if this is the correct name for the user type, but when they
log in, all they have on the dock are a few folders.  Bringing up the
applications folder only allows them to run the programs allowed by
the administrator.
  Thanks for any help!
