... But then reality rears its ugly head again.  I find that things work
just as you've described if I turn my rights down to "restricted user".  It
may not even be necessary to go that far.  So yes, we do have a problem
here.  Reference #1105.

Mark and all,

Yes, we are running the build from 24-May-2004.  I just tried to set the
embosser profiles on one of our desktops running under the Administrator
account and had no problems.  I was able to save the global embosser setup
and a document embosser setup with a test file.

Does everybody else running XP use their systems under an administrative
account?  Does the latest build of Duxbury require administrative access to
some of its'
components?  After I
installed the beta on our machines, I specifically went and assigned full
permissions (to the Users group) on the Dbtdocs and Duxbeta folders as well
as "C:\Windows\Duxbury.ini" in order to make sure our users could change
settings.  From what I learned above, it would appear that there may be
other restrictions in place under XP that I need to circumvent to allow
users to run the program and make settings changes.

Ironically, our XP systems are not locked down as well as our NT 4 systems
were with v10.4, so I don't understand why there would be a permissions
problem under XP.
If use of the latest
build of Duxbury requires administrative access to some component, then this
will be a problem for users in a corporate environment.  I certainly won't
grant all of our users administrative access to our systems - that defeats
the whole security mechanism of XP.
It is possible that I
have enabled some security feature that slips the mind at present and that
none of the other beta testers have done so, although I don't really think
that this is the case (but I've been wrong before).  Is any body else
running the beta under XP in a domain (and NOT logging on with an account
that has administrative privileges)?

Kevin--

Hi Kevin,

I was able to install the Thiel Impacto 600 as a share with no problem under
Windows XP Home and Windows 2000 Professional.  I'll check with Windows XP
PRO.  The dbt.elt file for beta 3 limits the lines per page for the Impacto
600 to 25, so I can't setup DBT exactly as you have yours.  Are you sure
about the latest beta build Monday, May 24, 2004?  I had a problem in beta 2
in the device settings tab and the only way to get out was to cancel and
that removed the embosser.

Best Regards,
Mark
