I was not able to get firefly running properly with Vista running standalone and the iTunes media pointing to a Win2003 server. Once I joined the domain and set the firefly service to log in as the domain user things are fine.
There is still a roadblock with UAC and the configuration tool though.
Thanks for your help and trust you will shake the flu.
That’s kind of a generic windows permissions thing, though.
You *should* be able to create a local user (that is an admin) that has the same username and password as a user on the domain that has rights (as long as the 2k3 server is a dc), or has the same username and password as a local user on the 2k3 server if it’s just a member server, but sure, adding it to the domain is a lot easier.
I’ve started splitting out the admin stuff into a separate program, but I’m a slow windows coder. 🙂 I spend too much time in msdn and not enough time pounding out code.
haven’t coded win32 in a long time.
