Hi:

I have a component services application. This application is contained in a dll. Inside the dll I need to make some API calls that need certain permissions. When I create  an instance of the component all this functions appear to fails even when I set the com application to run under the security context of an administrator in the "Identity" tab of the components services manager. There is any way that the server could make any API call o whatever it wants in the server? What kind of rights should I give it for this thing to work? An example of a task I want to acomplish is running a program from inside the component. The client application may run under the security context of  the IIS account so it could not have right to do this directly.

Hi fantasma,

In my opinion you have to debug permissions to see what is the problem.
How to do that:
1. In the server with IIS activate security policies (logon fails, etc) for seeing exactly what is happening. Next in the event viewer, security Item, you will see what are the denied permissions.
2. See logs of IIS.
3. Look if you can do that without component services, create and standard exe with the same funcionality and execute it to discard if is your account or is component services. (Execute the exe with the same user that you are using in component services)

Also, look at:

Maybe, you isolate the problem and give us much information, in that case we could help you more.
