Run as service task with Windows Server 2012
Sep 6th, 2013 at 11:00am
 
I have a problem using watchdirectory with Windows 2012 server.
When i create a new task it works perfectly UNLESS i configure it to run as a windows service. In this case the services try to run but windows return error "Services did not respondo or could not started".

Is this a compatibility issue with Windows 2012?

Something to do with UAC?

Many thanks for your help.

Looks like setting the service to run with another account instead of "Local system account" fix this issue.......

Well thats correct. Default service user 'Local System' does not have the right to access a network drive.
