Local Group that will allow a windows service to start?

P: n/a
I have a new domain account to use with my Windows Services.

The account name is WinServ.

I am trying to test my Windows Service on my XP Pro machine.
However the service won't start unless WinServ is a member of the Local
Admin group of my computer.

The only error message I get is "Access Denied".
At first I thought it was a directory permission but the service still
wouldn't start even after I gave everyone full control of the directory.

I have tried everyother built -in group but the admin group is the only one
that will allow it to start.

I don't want to put this user in my Local Admin Group. Any suggestions would
be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Aaron

Check your local security policy. The domain account must have "Logon as a
Service" user rights.
