      The difference is the user account you install it as? Which could potentially affect the location of some files... not too sure how this is related to Windows Server though?

      Are you thinking of an AD aware application? Little bit more info might help...

        a reply from a friend of mine :


        ""If software runs under a local account, that software will not have access to the network.
        This is generally a more secure solution, but in the case of a product such as Exchange, that network access is required to function.

        I'm assuming that's what you refer to. If software doesn't feature a service account, such as Microsoft Office, it's really not going to make a difference what you're logged on as at the time you install it.""



        but i need some official documentation about that.

        plz help

          From what I can gather, your friends reply looks ok in principle.

          And also what he's trying to say is that the requirement are different for different pieces of software.
          It's worth looking into the Installation notes for each application ie (For ISA 2006)- http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb794821.aspx

              ...and your point is?!?

              From what i understood in your Original post, you wanted to know the implications of installing a software with a local account or a domain account.
              your query seemed to be in general and not directly specific to any products (Although ISA 2006 was mentioned)

              The link you provided now brings into scene a different argument in my opinion which is whether ISA servers should be in a domain or not (Quite interesting nonetheless).

              So can you be a bit more clear about what you need to know (or put accross) as I am a bit confused.
