ACCESS DENIED problem in Win2003 With Service App.
Posted on 2004-09-02
I have a Service application which loads a Desktop app. (.EXE) which in turn loads a COM module (.DLL). The Service app is set to log on as "Local System Account" and "Allow Service to Interact With Desktop" is checked.
In Windows 2000 this all works without any problems at all. In Windows 2003 I get an "Access Denied" exeption when the COM module is loaded.
What do I have to do to make Win2003 accept this COM module? I've authorized SYSTEM, SERVICE and LOCAL SERVICE, among others in the directory paths -- but no success so far. What authorization is needed? And where?
