    Hello - I've currently got a problem at work that is giving me a few sleepless nights. Basically I support a specialised tax application that has been around for a number of years and is solid and of good quality. However we have one user who has developed a problem recently. This is our only User who is running Windows Server 2003 and Terminal Services. Basically the system had been working fine for a number of years but recently developed a problem. The User has not made any changes to the configuration other than the addition of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1.

    I can replicate the problem by denying Write access to the key system folder but I've got the User to check and he can write to files within the folder in question outside of the application. I know that Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 did introduce a number of improvements to Security but have not found anything to explain the problem. The application does make use of the Registry which may be relevant.

    Any ideas/pointers would be very gratefully received.

    Many thanks

    Steve W.

    Update - I've made some progress on this. The problem is being caused by the implementation of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1. I know this update made a number of changes to Security and I suspect the answer lies in this area.
