And you have the Database Control working as well?  And the automatic 
maintenance jobs?  Or other functionality that requires the network 
connection (such as JDBC to the host, since loopback adapter is not 
installed, and may not be installable), rather than the bequeath adapter.

As I say, I have been involved in a number of "I can't install and it's 
Windows XYZ Home", and it usually has traced down to network settings, 
and security settings, that are not normally exposed in the 
non-Professional editions.

And my apologies - it's "logon as batch job" not "run as batch job". That has been 
required for some capabilities, and it can be a challenge to add a user 
to use that priv.
