Authentication of my Windows Service

P: n/a
Hi newsgroup

I have a little problem with my windows service.

Before I made the service I made a Windows Application which reads and
writes data with ODBC.

I my Application it worked very good...

After this I made a windows Service with the same functionality. But now I
can't connect to my ODBC Database... a timeout without response happens...

At this time I know now that there is a problem with the windows rights or
authentication of the service in combination with ODBC. But I do not
understand the system; I modified the service to login a an administrator,
but had no luck with this... but there is something with the security...
Must I do something special like Folder security, app.config, authentication
of .net-components (services) in the .NET configuration or something like

Maybe one of you had these problems to? in all cases every little hint would
be a big help for me..

Thanks alot and regars
