Windows 2008 R2 service + Mezzmo

December 3rd, 2012 by Russell Leave a reply »

Here’s how to get Mezzmo to work in Windows 2008 R2 under a normal user account (and not request admin permissions when starting/stopping a service)

1) Get subinacl here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=23510
2) Run the following to grant your normal user account perms to start/stop/query the service: subinacl /service SERVICE_NAME /grant=COMPUTER_NAME\USERNAME=TOP
Ex: subinacl /service “\\MEDIA-SERVER\Mezzmo” /grant=\\MEDIA-SERVER\MEDIA=TOP

3) Extract patched Mezzmo files to install folder for Mezzmo (Ask Conceiva for the patched files)
4) Done!
