Did you mean to say that you changed Log on as: Local System Account in service properties or something else? > 5.

Having said that, I don't mean to say that we shouldn't have logic to generate unique name and I think we might want to add data dir path to name generation as we do for main shared memory, however it is better to first completely understand the underneath issue. If I understand correctly, here the problem is due to the reason that the second user doesn't have appropriate access rights to access the object created by first user. On reading the documentation of CreateFileMapping(), it seems that user should have SeCreateGlobalPrivilege privilege to create an object in Global namespace. Can you once try giving that privilege to the users created by you? To give this privilege, go to control panel->System And Security->Administrative Tools->Local Security Policy->Local Policies->User Rights Assignment, in the right window, select Create global objects and double-click the same and add the newly created users. Rerun your test after these steps. With Regards, Amit Kapila. EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com
