A service that is configured with a program file that remotely located (for example, on another Windows 2000-based computer) may not start with an "Access Denied" error message if the service is configured to start as an account other than the Local System account.
This problem occurs because Service Control Manager does not fully impersonate the user that is specified to start the service.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
