Log in an application as a user in windows

I am trying to log in an application that is installed on Windows 2003 server. This is what happens: I log in as an administrator in windows, I run the application, and I can log in the application (it requires log in information). If I log in as a user in windows, I run the application, I try to log in, but I get an error message: All connections are in use, your maximum licenses available are 15. Now the thing is that as an administrator in windows, I can log in the application with any user account. So it is not probably a license issue since noone is logged in when I get this error message. The application runs properly so it is not an issue of who has access to the application (although I have allready taken care of that by right-click, security and choose which group can have access and what rights they have to the application). Then I checked the User Rights in the Local Policy where you can change the rights that each group (administrators, users, power users, guests etc) have. (The thought was that if I add my user account to the administrators group, then I can log in the application, so I thought it is a group user rights issue). So I went to check the Local Policy user rights assignment. I changed the group of the users and I put all the rights the same as for the group of administrators. Still it didn't work. I tried to log in as a user from that group (that I had change all the rights to be the same as that for the administrators) but no success with the application. Please, any other thoughts? The application taht I try to log in to is ScheduAll. I contacted them and they said that it is probably a user right assigmment issue...but is it??

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

Did you install the application as the server/computer administrator and possibly leave a use option checked ‘for this user only’? Some applications will prompt during the install whether or not the application should be made available for a single user or all users of a computer. If the single user option was left checked it could very well return your error when other users try to run it.

Try uninstalling the application (complete uninstall) and then re-installing making sure you read through all available options thuroughly.

Good luck!

    Hi and thanks for your reply. I figured out the problem finally. The users didn't have write access to the common directory in the database. I do not have any knowledge on this (why and how) but I just checked the user permissions in the application's common directory, changed them (but didn't give them full control) and it worked! Myrto
