I would be very grateful for some assistance to deal with some user rights /privileges issues  
In short we need a Windows policy which will enable our application to run with a single logon to start the Application services;  Users then use an application logon from Application as either an Administrator or User to determine their functional privileges.
 
Application runs on both Windows Server 2003, all editions and Windows XP Pro latest service packs applied.  Sometimes the machines are part of A/D and sometimes not.  As far as I can see, we really need a simple script that creates the Application user account and sets up the appropriate rights to run application and associated programs from c:\program files.

hi,

if there is any access to any database such as access mdb or and file lock held by your application, it will need users rights to modify that file.

in my experience there are some apps that use a mdb and that will cause a problem for uses when it has been installed as admin. we have sorted that by adding modify rights on the mdb/flat file and then the users are able to work without any issues,

I have sorted this.  The way around this was map a drive to the workgroup server using the admin credentials on the workgroup server and then setting up the robocopy script using the mapped drive as the detination path.  Works a treat now.
