SYSTEM account fails to read configuration file where as other admin account does.(Quick View Plus 12.0)
Hi, can some one help me with a solution on the below issue.
I have a setup.exe and setup.cfg file. setup.cfg has the serial key and some other customization settings in it. If the setup.cfg file is placed in the same folder during the installation, the installation finishes successfully and handles the activation as well. The main purpose of setup.cfg is to handle the auto activation. This works perfectly fine when run using an admin account. But fails when run using SYSTEM account.
This issue is faced with Quickview Plus 12.
Any help is appreciated.

Think about how activation works....
Now think about what access the System account has. Specifically, think about its "full name", i.e. local System...
I'm sure you can work out the rest. As to a solution, if there's no way that the user can silently trigger an activation, perhaps you need to think about creating a special domain account which will have local admin privileges on all your estate's workstations (although most sites will already have such an account) and use that to install.
