Unable to use email feature in Quickbooks on Terminal Server without being power user or above.
Posted on 2004-10-04
The situation is this. I have Metaframe XP running on Windows 2000 Server with Quickbook Enterpise Solutions as the published application. Recently I have had a user who wanted to use the email feature in Quickbooks, which seems to call a regular Windows mail profile to choose and then opens Outlook with a form attached (Invoice, Statement,...etc) in PDF format.
In order for this to work, I had to add the User to the local Power Users group on the Metaframe Server. By doing this it gave him access to view but not print to every other users auto-created printer. This is normal in a Terminal Server environment but is unacceptable as he is able to view printers in Quickbooks from companies other than his own.
When the user is just part of the Domain Users group he doesn't see anyones printers except his own. But when the email button in Quickbooks is executed nothing happens. No error messages, nothing.
So, please help me find a way to have this users access the email feature without being part of a group with elavated privliges. It seems to me that the email feature calls upon files and registry entries needed to be written to or read from that requires a user with power user or above privleges.
