VSS needs admin rights?

Mar 3, 2009 at 1:33 PM
Hello together,

I have been testing AlphaVSS under Vista, but I got a security exception on CreateVssBackupComponents.
If I start my app with admin rights, everything runs well.

Do I really need to run my app with admin rights or is there an other solution.

Hi Alex

Yes, you need aministrator rights in Windows application for this.

Another variant: use VSS via WinService under LocalSystem account
