I have installed the server as a system service but I cannot add any network paths as resources, what should I do?

When a system service is installed the default in Windows is to run that program as “LocalSystem” account. What you need to do is to change the user that the program is running as in order to give the program access to e.g. network paths (a good choice is to use “Administrator” for the ProVide service).

  1. Right-click on “My Computer”
  2. Select “Manage”
  3. Double-click on “Services and Applications”
  4. Click on “Services
  5. Find “ProVide” in the right pane and double-click on it
  6. On the tab “Log On” you specify which account the program should run
