We have made a website, that runs a Web Service, that interacts with InDesign CS2 Server on a Windows Server 2003. When the DCOM configuration of the Adobe server is set to use Launching user its fails with a ActiveX component can't create object: InDesignServer.Application.
To make it work, we changed the DCOM config, to use a specific account, by selecting the This user option, and specify an administrator user account.
This works fine, but I was hoping that a user with fewer rights could be used for the job, since I dont like the idea of having a website interaction through an administrator account.
Has anyone sorted out what is needed for the account that runs the server? And if not, does anyone know if its a big security risk to use an administrator to launch the Adobe InDesign Server DCOM?
