Re: [Condor-users] Condor commands execution using system() function in C++

Hi Ian,

I have tried changing the permissions as you suggested. I have assigned
'Full Control' to everyone on the system, and tried executing them. It did
not work and is giving me the same error. As a small test, I created an
executable 'printHI.exe' and put that in the condor\bin folder. When I
executed that using system() function, it worked exactly the way I wanted.
Do you suggest there might be some kind of a problem with configuring condor
itself? If you, do you have any idea how I can change that?

Thank you for all the help

Go to the directory where Condor is installed and use Windows Explorer
to view the permissions. See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308419

Not necessarily. It depends on how Condor is configured. If it's
configured to run jobs as the submitting user then yes, you're right,
you shouldn't have a permission problem. But if it's configured to run
jobs as temporary, non-privledged user account on your machine you may
have a permission problem.
