When you log onto Windows NT after changing a user account from the Administrator's group to a group other than Administrators the following error message may appear:

GROUP ERROR: Cannot open program group [your group]. Do you want the Program Manager to still try to load it in the future?

This only happens with accounts that were migrated while the user belonged to the Administrator's group.


You must delete and recreate the account in User Manager or delete that user profile from Windows NT Setup. During the next logon the groups will migrate again.


For more information on migrating groups after the initial migrate query on:

Windows NT and migrate and profile
