On one PC with windows XP  PRO service Pack 3 recent installed act 6.0 and cant write documents on word 2003 because give me the error. "ACT cant open the word processor, this is due to the security permits(rules) on windows are not adecuate. This situation occurs when this account have a limited account type. If this account is changed to administrative type dont occur this type of error.

And this PC is the only one that need administrative privilege to wite documents on word, because we have others PC with limited account type and dont have any problems to write documents on word.

P.D. This PC conect to Windows 2003 Server with databaso on it.

The connection from ACT! 6 to Word is done through the registry and requires a local machine administrator or super user rights log in to Windows to be able to make the connection.

Re: ACT 6.0 on windows xp cant run word 2003 because needs administrative privilege?

 You should be able to add the security permissions you need without giving full access:

 

Note: This is intended specifically for Windows NT/2000/XP Administrators and will cover topics including Registry changes and NTFS rights. Although some of the error messages included with this document are common, we highly suggest you contact your System Administrator or IT (technical department) before attempting any of the changes to your system recommended in this document.

This describes the minimum security levels needed in the Registry and on the NTFS drive so that these error messages do not occur. Registry requirements:
Full control to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Act.Word6Drv.1
Full control to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{AF30AC40-ABC6-11CE-8AC8-00AA001430B4}
Full control to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Symantec

The user should have full control to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER key.  If for some reason this is not desired, you must determine what specific keys need full control for all parts of the program. Below are the subkeys in this key that require full control:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Symantec,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Word,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Open Find 95,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word (if it exists)

NTFS folder access requirements:
RWXD rights to the temp folder specified by the system Temp variable. Some temporary files are created in this folder when the link is initiated and are deleted when exiting Word.
RWXD rights to the WINNT folder only. These rights are not required for any of the files or subfolders in this folder. Some temp files are created in this folder when the link is initiated and are deleted when exiting Word.
