    Running Photoshop CS5 on Windows 7 from a Windows Service Using the COM Interface

    mlavie Level 1

      Hi all,


      I am using Visual Studio 2008 to write a C# Windows Service that will run Photoshop via its COM interface (using interop). This worked fine in CS3 on Windows 2003 or XP.


      I am now trying to do the same thing for CS5 on Windows 7, but it is only working if I:

      1) Disable UAC

      2) Run the Windows Service as Local Sysytem

      3) Specify "allow to interact with dektop


      Any ideas what to do so that the service can run as a regular power user account?


      (PS - I couldn;t find a more relevant forum. If there is one - please let me know).
