The user has not been made a power user on the server. Please note the following steps to assist with the proper security settings for FundWare servers.

Power User Group Settings
In order to run FundWare, your users must be power users on the FundWare server. If you have an Active Directory Organizational User (ADOU) Group for your accounting users, you will make it a member of the local Power Users group.

  1. Right click on My Computer and select Manage, Local Users and Groups, Groups.
  2. Double-Click the Power Users group.
  3. Add your ADOU to this group.
Note: If there is not an ADOU group, you will need to make the individual users power users on the server. NOTE: If the FundWare server is a Domain Controller you will not have the Local Users and Groups option. Refer to system requirements documentation that states we do not support FundWare on a Domain Controller!

Drive Settings

Power users will need to have the following rights on the drives on your server. Reset permissions on the drives and FundWare folder, applying to child objects:
  1. “Read, Write and Execute” on C* and D** drives.
  2. “Modify” rights on the D:FundWare Folder
  • C drive designates the default setting for the operating system drive.
  • D drive designates a secondary partition used for applications and third party products

 Virus Protection and Spy Ware

1. Background system scans are fine to run on the FundWare server
  • the FundWare and MSSQL Folders from the background scans
  • Setup a scheduled scan for either the entire system or for the two folders excluded above (FundWare and MSSQL)
2. Do not install SpyWare software on the FundWare server. SpyWare has been known to mistake our programs as being spyware and deletes them.
