    Hi everyone,

    I have an application running as a service under an Administrator user
    account which needs to access resources in a network share. The Admin user
    account has permission to access the share.

    When running under Windows XP the application has no problem accessing files
    on the network share, however when I move the application across to Windows
    2003 Server it cannot access files on the share.

    I've tries looking at options in the Local Security Policy (the server is
    not part of a domain) but couldn't see anything relevant. Can anyone tell me
    what is going on?

    Thanks very much,

    Sorry please ignore - solved. The user account the service was wunning under
    didn't have permission for the network share.
