Controlling access to local database

I have set the default level in the ACL so that users cannot create shared or personal views or folders within the databse we are using. Everything is running local on the user's station. For the present, we are not using the server. However, we find that users have full access to do anything they want with the database. Our goal is to stop users from deleting/creating/renaming views and folders of any kind within the application.

If I understand this correctly, here is what you are doing... You have created a Notes application. You gave each person a separate physical copy of the application, and put it on each person's computer. Then you adjusted the ACL of each copy to control what that person can do in the application.

Assuming I have this correct, the problem is that it won't work. Notes enforces most of its security settings by working with the Domino server. Notes basically assumes that you are using a Domino server to hold the databases. Most security features are simply turned off when you have your own local copy of a database.
