Windows 7 Full Admin Privelages?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit
Dell Vostro 1540

Trying to run Tomcat for a program my client runs.

Although the account is an Administrator account it does not have the ability to modify the tomcat files or run the service manager.  

Anything I  can try?

Where would I find Dependencies? I am waiting on the developer to resolve this issue remotely.  But been 3 days and still waiting.

Trying to resolve myself, but in the dark.

I can get it to work on my xp system no problems.  Win 7.  Different story.

start/control panel/admin tools/services and then look for service manager you tried to start. If it is listed double click it and then go to the Dependencies tab to see if there is anything else that needs to be running.

Your issue may be caused by the UAC feature, to verify this try disableing UAC and see if you can modify the tomcat files.

 WARNING!: Disabling UAC will lead to a less secure system.

1. type UAC into the start menu or Control Panel search box.

2. drag the slider all the way down and click ok.

You may need to reboot for it to take effect.

Try re-enabling UAC and going to services.msc and running the service under a new user by going to the logon tab and selecting "This account" and then  select browser, type in the object name "network", click "check names", click "apply" and then stop and start the service manually.
