Establishing log on as a service right

On Microsoft Windows, If you need to specify a service account, ensure that the service account has the appropriate rights.


  1. On the computer where the standalone Spotfire Statistics Services is to be installed, log on with a user name that is a member of the local administrators group.
  2. On the taskbar, click Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy.
  3. In the Local Security Settings dialog box, under Security Settings, expand Local Policies.
  4. Select User Rights Assignment, and then double click Log on as a Service.
  5. In the Log on as a service Properties dialog box, click Add User or Group, and then enter the service account you will specify during installation.
    Note: If you need to configure this option after you install Spotfire Statistics Services, you can do so, but you must stop the service before following these steps, and then restart the service.
  6. Ensure the service account has all appropriate access permissions for any local or external resources (that is, the Spotfire Statistics Services installation directory, the domain resources, and so on).
