Hi Jelly,

the account does not need to have special permissions. I only tried it with Local System, but perhaps also Network Service is possible. - Need to be tried :wink:

That’s awesome! Thanks Ruben! Does the service have to run with an account with enough permissions? Or is Local System high enough?

Awesome! Can’t wait to try this, really great post. Thank you :slight_smile:
