Windows 2000 Permissions Compatibility
Fixed in V5.1 and above.
Currently Available Version is 5.1c fixed

For Versions prior to 5.1:

Workaround 1: Expired/invalid license
Workaround 2: Browser based updates don't stick.

Or upgrade here.

Windows 2000 has a more restrictive access policy than previous versions of Windows.

Both Registry settings and the NTFS file system are affected, and two key IIS accounts do not have default read permissions: IUSR_machineName and IWAM_machineName.

AuthentiX, WebQuota, AuthentiX ISP and WebQuota ISP Version 5.1 and above, OCXMail and ocxQmail Version 2.7 and above, ASPSort Version 1.1 and above, OCXHttp Version 1.4 and above address this issue, and you should not experience problems related to this new more restrictive access policy with these versions.

For existing products the following problems may occur when using Flicks Software OCX components,
such as
AUTHXOCX.AuthXOCXCtrl.1,
AUTHXISP.AuthXOCXCtrl.1
used in browser based remote administration:

  • The software has expired, or has an invalid licence:

    Because the software inspects the Registry to retrieve the serial number, and the OCX components are running under IIS (as IUSR_machineName and IWAM_machineName, which don't have general read permission for the Registry), the software will not be able to read the serial number and will assume it has expired or is invalid.

    Use Fix 1 to address this.

  • Adding users via remote administration does not update the filter.

    AuthentiX/WebQuota (Standard): The configuration file authx.adb does not have write permission for IUSR_machineName or IWAM_machineName so the remote administration module cannot update it.

    AuthentiX/WebQuota ISP: The configuration files *.adb in the authxISPData directory do not have write permission for IUSR_machineName or IWAM_machineName so the remote administration module cannot update it.

    Use Fix 2 to address this.
