Can not create/write/delete file on root of c: drive
I have a customer that would like to use the Data Tracking wizard in Excel in
Office 2007. They installed the add-in but it only works correctly under
the Administrator account. When I ran Process Montor I discovered that the
problem is occuring because the wizard is trying to create/write/delete a
file in the root of the c: drive. Vista does not like this and neither does
Windows 2003 Terminal server.

Does any one know how to get either Vista or Terminal server to allow a user
(not administrator) to create a file on the root of c:?

I tried assigning file permissions to the root of c: for the user but his
does not work. There is a higher authority working somewhere that is
overriding everything.

Any help is appreciated.

Brad,

You might try turning off UAC for that account to see if it will help.
This tutorial will show you how if needed.
