Window service - ServiceAccount.LocalSystem

Hi all,

I have a window service installed under LocalSystem account.
In addition, I have a win form which uses a remote object (using .Net
remoting) to the service. When I try to activate a method of the
remote object which updates the service config file, I get an access
denied error.
I have search the web and found out that LocalSystem account has the
max priviliges. If so why do I get acces denied?

Thank U so much for the help.

I believe that's because the user account that's using the remote object
from the Windows application doesn't have the correct privileges or doesn't
exist on the directory.
