Hey guys,

I've been having all sorts of issues with Quickbooks.  Now, in order to get the thing to work, I have to log into the server it is on and then start up the application.

Well, I'm not here all the time and the Accounting Department needs to go into the server to turn it on whenever needed.  I wanted to give them logon access to the server, but wanted to limit the access given.  So far allI want them to do is go in remotely and be able to start up that one application.

Any ideas?  I don't want them to run any other applications.

U can use scheduled task to start the application  on the sever example a the start up
or you can use psexec to start remotly (http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/PsExec.html)

startup wouldn't work, I never turn off the server.  I'll look into PsExec.  Hmm.. if all else fails, maybe just give just enough permissions to start up applications and log on locally and remotely.  Now that I look through the programs I have installed, there isn't anything else that I'm worried about.

Which built in group would you add her to?
