Photoshop: Multiple Adobe Installations on ONE [Not 2] Computer For Extra User Accounts.

I've browsed and searched the forums for an answer to this scenario, but all I've found is people asking about the policy/license limit if they want to install a purchased copy of Photoshop on more than one computer. My question is different than that.

What I want to know is: I have a purchased copy of Adobe Photoshop and have it installed on my PC's main admin (mine), Windows 7 user account. However, on this computer, I have 3 additional user accounts set up as 'limited' accounts for my children to use. Part of the reason that I purchased Photoshop was so that my eldest daughter could use it for school projects, etc. etc.
I'd prefer that she not use my personal [admin] user account on this PC because I don't want her having open access to get into trouble online.

So, in short, the question is: How many user accounts can I install Photoshop on on only one computer? Does it follow the same purchase policy as if each user were a separate computer, thus limiting me to 2 installs, or is my question pointless because one install will automatically cover all the user accounts on my PC?

I appreciate your assistance in advance.

P.S. While it is wise to respond to my question in THIS forum so that others may learn from it, I'd also ask that you contact me personally in an effort to keep a better line of troubleshooting and communication open. I will, of course, understand if you'd rather not do that though.
To find me online/Facebook, just do a search for Crayon Scribe. Or, more directly, use the site URL:

In this case, you only need to install once. Photoshop will be available to use from any of the user accounts on the system.
