Working on a 2 machine workgroup, one is w7 and contains the database for rms. Machine 2 was xp, but has recently been upgraded to w7 as well. I cannot get the pos account to connect to database without giving it local admin rights. The previous machine (xp) was able to connect just being in the power user group, but this is not the case on the new machine. I read that if not local admin, the user will need to be given access to rms registry. I tried this, and had no luck also. Does anyone have any experience/tips they could share with a setup like this? All other setups are on domain so I have not run into this yet, and it's got me a little stumped.

Thank you for your question about having to be logged into your Windows 7 terminal as local admin to connect to the database. Have you tried to set the compatibility mode for RMS?
How to set compatibility mode for RMS:
Right-click Store Operations POS, Manager, or Administrator
Select Compatibility tab
Under compatibility mode select Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
Under Privilege Level select Run this program as an administrator
Select Change settings for all users
This should be done will all application (Store Operations POS, Store Operations Manager, and Store Operations Administrator)
Does this provide any help your problem?
