Hey Gurus of Serverfault!

I've encountered an issue with the network accounts on our OS X based system here. We are running OS X Server (Mountain Lion) with network accounts connecting to this local server.

Basically some of the users are installing apps in their accounts and when they log back in (regardless of computer, same or different) the app will no longer open. They launch it, it bounces for a bit then closes.

I can rectify this by reinstalling the app but it becomes a bit tiresome having to do this repeatedly.

I have tried putting the .app file into the User's Application folder on the server, and also into the local Application folder for the computer, neither will launch unless reinstalled.

Anyone have any ideas on how to rectify this?
