[THIN] Re: permissions compatible with Terminal Server 4.0 users

whoops typing too fast whilst eating prawn sarnies and drinking Tiger beer

"put a shortcut to some holder from NT4 app that is part of win2k " should
read

"put a shortcut to some holdover NT4 app that is part of win2k"

Back to the beer.

Ooo this is a blast from the past :¬)

Business Objects 5.03 isnt that difficult. The main permissions issues are
with the Business Objects registry hive under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE as Steve previosuly noted.

Users or groups need Set Value and Create Subkey options settings .. this
will show up as Special perms or if you wish to go further assign full
control.
On the Business Objects CD there should be a directory that has an app to
make BO work with Windows 2000... it changes registry perms to everyone full
control .. dont run it! ( later builds have updated instructions and less
dramatic changes)

Also, Business Objects 5.03 is not compliant with Windows 2000 Terminal
Services ...Business Objects themselves state this.
If you try and copy and paste between Business Objects and Excel expect
errors to occur.
Application compatibility bits that worked for NT4 Terminal Server and
Business Objects dont work either. The only way i found to correct it was to
put a shortcut to some holder from NT4 app that is part of win2k ...
Clipboard if i recall correctly.

When i deployed 5.03 /5.04 about 3 years ago we also had problems printing
via TS/Citrix with one of those versions.

Business Objects have a minimum version that they support with Windows 2000
Terminal Services /Citrix. This can be obtained from their support site.

We are using 5.1.8 and we needed to change no registry permissions to get it
working and the crashing when copying and pasting is no longer an issue.

If you try to use the xla integration with excel you may well have to alter
permissions to plenty of registry keys under
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID

Regmon and Filemon are your friends

Also because Business Objects stores folder settings in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE you have to specify the same folders for
everyone ie point them to home directories. Our users complain that they
cant set some folders to the directories that they want. Business Objects
6.x handles this much better.

Hope this information helps.

Regards
