Windows Server 2008 R2 Terminal Server Doro PDF Writer/Printer standard user access issue
Posted on 2011-03-16
Hello experts. I have hit a snag.
I have been using the wonderful program Doro PDF Writer to provide a simple way for my users to create PDFs. I have installed it on a Windows 2003 terminal server with great success.
However, I have just installed it on a Windows 2008 R2 terminal server in a domain and now only local system administrators can use it. Standard users can launch the application but then they get the error "Can't create filename.pdf in C:\Users\username\Desktop". Administrators do not get this error. I looked in the taskmanager and the Doro program is running under the users account so it shuold be able to write to the users desktop.
I have run into this issue before on terminal servers and it is usually a permissions thing for the program folder or registry keys. I gave the remote desktop users group full access the the Doro program folder and that had no effect. I went looking in the registry by searching on the word Doro and came up with many entries.
Before I start editing registry permissions thought I would give someone out there who has experience in these matters weigh in on the subject.
So, the question is, how do I get this program to work for a standard user without turning them into local administrators?
