Description

Via @agowa338 Klaus Frank on Twitter

  • Does your windows version really need to run as system user?
  • Good q. This is only when running as a service. Is there a way to run a service as a different user?
  • yes, a service can be run within eithet a service user or any other users context. and if the computer is a domain member there are also group managed service accounts.
