Hello, i have an application that i need to run it under Limited user account and it won't run.

I've looked online and i saw that we can use the cacls (acces list) but its not working or im not doing it right.

i also got a Run As script that automaticly fills the admin password without the user seeing it, it works perfect on all aplications except this one because it has a database and it is not running right.

Any other sugestions or anyone can help with editing access lists?

thanks.

Any chance of more details?
Specifically: Program Name, What you've done with cacls and the results you've had back, what version of XP you're running etc

Thanks,
Tom

Im running windows XP Pro , the application is at my worplace network, its called Materials Control and it uses oracle database, it used to issue orders, inventories...

with cacls i used the following cacls "Program Files\newprogram" /e /t /p users:c and i got the list of the files within the folder i specified and it said it proccessed each one of them.

i dunno how to work with cacls more than what i mentioned i was hoping someone would show me the way.

actually when i used the VBS script it works on all applications perfectly and on the Material control but it does not load the database from the server when i run it with the script, the applications runs localy.

i will try dtaskmanager and see what happens.

thanks a lot guys.

Ok guys i cheked out the dtaskmanager and it's not pretty helpful because most of the users on the workplace network are no computer experts and its not practical that they need to run dtaskamanger each time they want to use Material Control,

i need a way to that allows me to change the settings once for all.

Not familiar with Oracle, but you might want to check the permissions on the database itself
