PTBurn/SDK Server only works correctly if I am logged in as administrator. What specific rights are required to run as a user?
Restricted Users can be given specific rights to run the Bravo. Follow these steps:
1. All installations first need to be installed by a user with administrative rights (including PTBurn, Surething, and the Printer Driver). When running the installation be sure to choose the option to install for "Everyone" using the computer.
2. After installing the Disc Publisher printer driver, the administrator must open the Printers Folder, right-click on ‘Disc Publisher II’ or 'Disc Publisher Pro' click Properties, and click on the Security* tab. Now click on Everyone in Group or user names. Check the allow box for both Manage Printers and for Manage Documents. Click OK.
3. The administrator must also change Permissions on three folders and three registry entries: Folders -A. \Program Files\Common Files\PTBurn\ B. \PTBurnJobs(NW) - Created after first launch of Server Software.C. C:\WINNT\rptcds.ini or C:\Windows\rptcds.ini (PTBurn Only)Registry Keys - D. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Applications\stcd.exeE. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\stcd.exeF. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Software\MicroVision
The admin must browse to each of these folders and right-click on the folder, then click the Security tab - click on Users in Group or user names; then check the Allow box for both Modify and for Write. Click OK.
To change the registry key click Start - Run - type "regedt32". Browse to the above location - right click on stcd.exe - choose permissions. Choose the user or group and check full control.
After making these changes you must open PTBurn Server for the first time as Administrator.
* Note: If you do not see a "Security" tab on printer properties page, you will need to disable "Simple File Sharing" in Folder Options, view tab.To do so: Open Windows Explorer - Select Tools - Select Folder options - Select View - Go to the bottom of the list, deselect "Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended)" check box.
