C#.net How do you give a Windows service specific permissions?

    Question

  • Hi,

          I want to be able to create a new user account with only the necessary privileges  etc (getting a web webrequest from a web page, then writeing the result to a file). And configure the service to run under the new user account. I cant seem to work out how to do this. Hope someone can help me.

         Thanks in advance

  • Hi

    if you want to configure a service to use a specific user account you have to

    - install the service

    - open up service manager (control panel - administrative tools - services)

    - right click on the service, choose properties

    - in the tab Logon, choose this account and supply the necessary info

     

    Hope this helps, please close the thread if it does

    Do you mean that how to set such perticular access rights in user account? I think such very typical permission set can be applied through policies but not sure that such typical rights are allowed to set or not...
