    Question Run program as non-administrator

    I'm putting together a terminal server for faculty and staff to use. They need to use an Oracle client program to access our student information system. The program won't run as a regular user.



    If I run it as administrator it runs fine.

    How can I figure out what permissions my users need to run the program? I tried using Sysinternals procmon but I can't find anything that looks obvious...

    I use AutoIT 3 to get around these types of problems. Its free and will make a exe for you that will run as an account you specifiy. One thing to note though is that the program would then run under that users context. That basically means that rather then seeing their own my docs etc they would see the runas users my docs but if its not that type of program it may be okay.
    AutoIt v3 - Downloads
    Function RunAs
    Function RunAsWait

    EDIT: check your services list as it mentions a driver and I wonder if a driver service gets started when they run the app.

    I was considering doing something like that, but I'd really like to just find out what it needs to access.

    It does involve a service. I'm not sure what to do with that information, though.

    Oracle usually requires full access to the oracle folder to run.

    I use makemeadmin to elevate an install (read the docs to see how this works)

    Well, there's something else going on. I contacted tech support for the software and they told me to do stuff that I had already tried - grant full control to the user for the Oracle and USYS92 directories. I tried it on another computer and it's no problem.

    So, now it's just on this computer, or possibly just on Server 2008 R2/newer operating systems than XP SP3.
