We're experiencing the same problem as the original post. We are deploying Solidworks 2009 SP4 to Windows XP SP3 clients in locked down environment for students.
Running Solidworks as a normal user, I get the restricted set of options on the Solidworks Resources tab and clicking on New Document, Tutorials does nothing.
If I perform a Run As on sldworks.exe with an administrator account (still logged in as a normal user), all the options appear and the links for Tutorials etc work fine.
swhtmlcontrol.dll is registered fine.
Any help would be appreciated.
