Issue with PC Files - Admin rights issue

When I am in the local admin group on the server, I am able to run PC files successfully. Our IT department wants to know if there is a certain local security policy they can add the sasusers group to so we can still run PC files. Do you know if there is a certain permissions to a file or folder that I need to have to run the report, or do I need to be granted some right through the local security policy of the server.

Thanks,
Chris

Re: Issue with PC Files - Admin rights issue

You might check out the Autostart feature for PC Files - great for use on Windows 64-bit servers.

Note that there was a recent hotfix for this (PC Files Server) to improve how it works in workspaces (such as from EG), so you'll want to make sure you've got the latest.
