By default, a network service user runs the IIS application pools. This user (or the user you change it to) must have Windows level permissions to the following directories:

  • C:\Windows\Temp
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\SentryOne (or your custom install directory)
  • C:\ProgramData\SentryOne (or your custom install directory)
