This computer is not authorized to perform this function

User is printing a document from MAS90 software. When he selects Export/E-mail as the printer option, he receives message "This computer is not authorized to perform this function." This is not a MAS90 error message, and Google searches do not turn up anything with that exact wording, but I believe it is a rights issue on the network. Anybody have any ideas? User can print to his printer or to a network printer without issue.

I agree that this may be a network permissions issue, but just for the heck of it.  Verify that this user is authorized to print that document in MAS90 Security.  ie.. if he/she is trying to print an AR invoice, go into the security for that user role, and see if the boxed is checked to allow them to print invoices.. etc.

On the net work side, make sure the user has rights to the Email Program and or the File that he is trying to export to.

User has rights in MAS90 to print the document - and can print to a printer. It is only when trying to export that the message is received. He doesn't even get to the format selection screen for the export, so I'm not sure if it is an application issue. I'm guessing it has to be network permissions or, since it is MAS200, possibly something at the server level.
Can you run log in as admin and run this. If yes then a permissions issue with the export/print function. To see whats being called start up process explorer and watch what is being called and rejected. It should help you track down what is being blocked

Process explorer

Issue was permissions set at Terminal Server - my client neglected to tell us that the user was accessing the program via terminal services. Adjusted permissions on terminal server to resolve.
