RESOLUTION

If the trial registration fails on Windows 2003, log in as a user with an account having administrator privileges instead of "Local System" privileges. The procedure to do this is as follows: 

  1. Open the Windows Services dialog box (Start > Run > services.msc).
  2. Right-click GlobalSCAPE EFT Server or Secure FTP Server, then click Properties. The Properties dialog box appears.
  3. Click the Log On tab.
  4. Click the This account option, and then click Browse to select a user account that has administrator privileges.
  5. Click OK, and then Stop and Restart the Service to effect the changes.
