I have to give an MSI to a large organisation for it to install (presumably via GPO) on to some of their workstations that are running XP.
I already know that my application is not allowed to write to the application folder. I realise it should be writing to the AppData folder.
The organisation has allocated a folder on a server for the database files and other configuration files. This folder is referenced by UNC naming and not by mapped drives.
My question is: based on normal practices, is my app likely to have the rights to create a sub-folder on this server? Is my app likely to have the rights to create files on this server?
