    Hi - I was reading an article which suggested setting up a 2nd user account in case of problems. I did this and gave it Admin status. I have not used the account but went in to it and tried to run "Cocktail". App tries to open and quits. I then clicked on 'Cocktail extras' (it's a demo) and it said I did not have sufficient priveleges. Both work fine on my 'normal' account.
    I did run repair permissions just for the heck of it.... no help.

    ?????? (I'm a newbie and recent switcher)

    try to right click on the file and then click on get info. check owner and permissions tab and there you should know if you have the permission required to open the application. Hope this will help :)
