SCW stops configuring services if it encounters an “Access denied” error in Windows 7, in Windows Vista, in Windows Server 2008 or in Windows Server 2008 R2
Assume that you use the Security Configuration Wizard (SCW) to configure services on a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:
- Windows Vista
- Windows Server 2008
- Windows 7
- Windows Server 2008 R2
However, if the SCW encounters an “Access denied” error when it configures a service, the SCW does not configure the remaining services.
When this issue occurs, the services are left in an inconsistent state.
