    This worked great!

    I looked and it is already checked.

    View the Properties for your Hyena shortcut and you should see a Compatibility tab. Check the box to Run this program as an administrator. You will still have the option to Run As Different User when you start it.

    I used Run as Different User because the local admin does not have access to the domain. I am trying to access other win 7 systems on the network. Everything else works except Printers. I even had to enable remote registry on each Win 7 system to look at their registry.

    Also, you said you are a domain admin, but did you try the suggestion above to use the Run As Administrator option in Windows 7?

    This typically applies to servers with large numbers of printers. But in this case it is worth a quick test to see if it helps.

    Will this work in Windows 7?

    Try the RPC buffer size registry setting change as outlined here:

    sc.exe worked, at.exe worked, and schtasks.exe gave access is denied. I know it has to do with some remote access service but I cannot find which one.

    But what about the commands in that KB article ?

    I was able to log onto the admin shares on the Win 7 systems without any problems.

    See if you can go to a command prompt and type something like:

    dir \\server\c$

    And, try some of the commands listed on this KB article:

    I get "Unable to list printers on \\IT-12345, Error=1722. The RPC server is unavailable" I am running Hyena with a domain admin account.
