Configuring Internet Explorer Running Under the Local System Account

We recommend configuring all the Denodo Windows services under a specific user account instead of the local system account. The section Configure Windows Services explains how to do this.

However, if you cannot do this and you have to change the default settings of Microsoft Internet Explorer when it runs under the local system account, follow these steps:

  1. Download the Microsoft utility suite PsTools) and unzip it.

  2. Start the “Interactive Services Detection” Windows service.

  3. Use the PsExec utility, included in the PsTools suite, to open a Microsoft Internet Explorer instance on the local system account. To do that, execute the following from a command line (adapting the path of the Microsoft Internet Explorer executable to that of your system):

    PsExec.exe -s -i 0 "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
    
  4. Perform the necessary configuration changes.

  5. After closing Microsoft Internet Explorer, the system will be ready to use the ITPilot Browser Pool as a Windows service on the local system account.
