How to Assign Permissions for the Windows Temporary Folder

For the latest version of Commerce Server 2007 Help, see the Microsoft Web site.

Follow these steps to assign write permissions for the Windows Temporary folder on computers hosting Commerce Server Web services. You assign write permissions for the RunTimeUser and all Web service accounts that you created as explained in the What Are the Accounts and Groups to Create? topic. You will be unable to run the Business User applications that are hosted by the Business Management server if you omit these steps.

To assign permissions for the Windows Temporary folder

  1. Click Start, click Run, type explorer, and then click OK.

  2. In Windows Explorer, move to the <drive:>\Windows (or <drive:>\WinNT, where appropriate) folder.

  3. Right-click Temp, and then click Properties.

  4. In the Temp Properties dialog box, on the Security tab, click Add.

  5. In the Enter the object names to select text box, type <Domain or Computer name>\RunTimeUser, and then click OK.


    As appropriate, substitute the user name for the anonymous account you created for "RunTimeUser".

  6. In the Temp Properties dialog box, in the Groups or user names list, select the RunTimeUser account.

  7. In the Permissions for RunTimeUser list, select Write in the Allow column. (Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, and Read should already be selected in the Allow column.) Click OK.

  8. In the Security dialog box, click Yes.

  9. Repeat steps 3 through 8 for the CatalogWebSvc, MarketingWebSvc, OrdersWebSvc, and ProfilesWebSvc accounts.
