Windows Server 2003 - Permissions

April 28, 2009 at 23:16:21
Specs: Windows Server 2003
I recently created a new user.
He was added to administors group.
He was removed from all his old groups.
I gave him full permissions to everything.

But, he still cannot register ocx files. Thus, any program that needs ocx files will not run. Even if they are already in system32. Any ideas?

If he were in old groups, then how is he a new user?

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

When you create a new user, he automatically joins the "users" group. And, when you add them to remote desktop, he automatically joins remote desktop group.

I removed him from both of those groups, and added him to administrators.

First off, this post should be in the "Win Server 2003" forum rather than here in the "Networking" forum where we deal mainly with networking issues (which this isn't, obviously).

These ocx files, where exactly is the user installing the software that requires it on a server (DC or otherwise) or on a client PC?

When I was making the thread, I didn't see such forum.

Anyways, it's on a server.
The administrator has sucessfully installed the OCX files to system32, and the application works. But the user I created, with administrator rights, cannot register ocx files for some reason, and the program won't run. I even changed permissions for him so he could do every in system32... Still nothing.

any ideas?

Hmmmm....I'm stumped.

I've been away from Windows Servers and domain administration for a few years so my MS skills are rusting.

You may want to post this over in the 2003 server forum. You'll have better luck getting an answer there.
