  • Administrator users can't run vb6 App on Remoted Desktop Server 2012

    Hi guys,
    Absolutely desperate here. I inherited a VB6 app (which I am currently converting to VB.NET), but the IT dept has upgraded the Server to 2012. We have not finished the upgrade, so as an interim workaround, they are trying to use the VB6 version for remote users.
    This is where the problem is:
    Administrator can run the app perfectly (Either logged in as Admin or Right-clicking and running as Admin). If other users (even with full admin rights, full access to folders) run it, they run into problems when certain ocx / dlls (I presume) are being called. One of these is the emailing function (sending via Outlook).
    We temporarily resolved the problem by running the app from each station as Admin (Runas). Problem solved. Except for the fact that because the app is run as Admin - it wants to use the Admin account profile and not the user. Also some users are getting an Active X Cant Create Component Error 429.
    Any ideas?

    I have read that disabling UAC might work, but not sure if it will (seen as though everyone had admin rights but couldn't run the app properly).

    I am extremely desperate, as if the function doesn't work, the pressure will be on me to complete the upgrade...

    Please, please, please
