Error when starting a program

By rmammen · 4 replies

  1. Hello.

    When try to run the executable file called syncagent.exe, i get the following error message:
    "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access them."

    Then when trying to start the program through another window, it says:
    "Couldn't create the process agent/syncagent.exe
    System error message: Access denied"

    How do i run my program?

    I'm running windows xp sp2.
    The name of the program i'm trying to run is Ghost Keylogger.
    It has run before successfully in the past.
    There is only one user on this computer and that is who I am logged in as.

    Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

    I don't see the point of ghost keylogger if you are the only user on the computer -> usually people would use it to monitor their kids ect?

    Right click the file -> properties -> security tab -> select your account from the top box -> click the edit button

    This will allow you to set permissions for this file -> full control -> ok -> ok

    No Security Tab

    Hey thanks for the response.

    I right clicked the file and selected properties but the only tabs available were:

    ... so no security tab.
    Sorry, ... Any other suggestions or perhaps another place i can access this security feature?

    What firewall are you using? Other security software that may be blocking?

    There's some contradiction here. I found the following information for SyncAgent:

    SyncAgent™ allows you to backup databases from your primary SQL Server® and restore them to another server(s) on your network automatically. It is describes as "Automated Synchronization, Recovery, and Backup Manager for ALARM CENTER® Databases: http://www.securitysoftware.com/syncagent.asp

    On the other hand, Ghost Keylogger is a separate program:

    As far as I can tell, there is no relationship between these two programs.
