Subject:  Re: User Rights for Run as a Service
 Again, thank you for the information. I will play with user rights until I find the right combination relative to security verses functionality.

This topic is always confusing, because the default user rights on different servers can vary, depending on how administrators decided to harden their security.  At a minimum, the FoxWeb service user will need to be able to read and write into the FoxWeb scripts, data and temp folders, as well as the Windows temp folder.  This user will also need read/write access to the FoxWeb registry key (hkey_local_machine\Software\Aegis Group\FoxWeb).
One some older installations of Windows and VFP, we have also seen the need to be able to write to the \Windows\System32 folder, but I have not encountered this recently.

 I want to run Foxweb as a service but I also want to be sure I only provide enought user rights so that my web service and server are protected. Do you have a model of what user rights are required to run Foxweb on IIS yet still protect the server? The system is a Windows 2003 SBS OS running IIS6 with VFP 9.

Thanks for you help.
