Getting Access Denied when trying to work with PrintQueue object

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I have client app that I am working on that is supposed to be able to manage print queues, such as resuming print jobs or purging jobs that have hung up.  The problem I am running in to is that I need to open the queue with appropriate rights to do that management.

I am using the line  below to create the queue.

pq = new PrintQueue(ps, printQueue, PrintSystemDesiredAccess.AdministratePrinter);

However, this line returns an access denied.  I am an admin on the local box, so I can't image why I am having this issue.

If I open the queue like this:

pq = new PrintQueue(ps, printQueue);

The open works find, but when I try to access the jobs in that queue, I get the access denied message.

Any idea what I am doing wrong here?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Access Denied while using Sharepoint designer 2007 to create a work flow

I am using Sharepoint Designer 2007 to create a work flow that sends emails to different people in a group depending on status of a record. For example, when some one reports a problem, an email is posted to concerned person and as soon as he/she checks the problem and updates the status an email is sent to next department and so on. Starting the work flow creation wizard is no problem but as soon as I press 'Finish' to create workflow I get 'Access Denied' message box. Any Ideas? I am using WSS 3.0 on 2003 Server.

Create List Sharepoint Client Object Model Access Denied



I am trying to create a silverlight application by making use of the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model using the following code:

private void CreateList(object sender, ClientRequestFailedEventArgs e)
  ClientContext ctx = new ClientContext("http://server");
  ListCreationInformation lc = new ListCreationInformation();
  lc.Title = "FlexiTime";
  lc.Description = "";
  lc.TemplateType = (int)ListTemplateType.GenericList;
  List newList = ctx.Web.Lists.Add(lc);
  System.Threading.ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(new WaitCallback(CreateListCallback), ctx);

private void CreateListCallback(object s)
  var context = (ClientContext)s;  

The error I receive is as follows:


Client Object Model - Anonymous Access (Access Denied)

I am trying to get a silverlight application which uses the client object model to work with anonymous access.  I have found the following msdn article.
however on the beta there does not appear to be any authenticationmode method to use.

Does anyone know if they have removed this from the beta dll?  or does anyone have any idea how you can get the client object model to work over anonymous access.

Creating a work flow, 'Access denied' ahhhhhhhhhhh


hopefully someone can help me with this before i begin playing target practice at the server with bricks.


Iv created a simple list. (contains no items at this point) Then i created a reuseable work flow in SPD (latest version - installed yesterday!) then published, when trying to add this flow to the list, only if i click either of the option "start flow when add/edit" i get the very anoying 'Access denied' Im logged in as the site col admin.

After some research it seems this is a common bug, a solution that seems to work for others is to check out/check in the flow. However i do not see any option to check out/check in any flows. Infact i dont think iv ever seen this option on anything in Designer.


Can someone please point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advanced



Access to report file denied. Another program may be using it.


Migrated from Windows 2000 ASP.NET 1.1 to Windows 2003, ASP.NET 2.0 and had this error. All the forums/MSDN/Blogs says to give Read/Write Access to C:\Windows\Temp folder. Why should we give Full Access to some folder in Production server?? In windows 2000, ASP.NET 2.0 development machine, no files are created when we run crystal reports from aspx pages. Then why in Windows 2003 servers, we need to give rights to temp folder?? It is a simple code


And the code is not storing anything on the disk. Then why should it store the GUID.rpt file in Temp file in Windows 2003 server?? Any alternative is there not to store anything on the disk when Crystal Reports are opened in aspx page??


A Young Person's Guide to The Simple Object Access Protocol: SOAP Increases Interoperability Across


The Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) facilitates interoperability among a wide range of programs and platforms, making existing applications accessible to a broader range of users. SOAP combines the proven Web technology of HTTP with the flexibility and extensibility of XML. This article takes you on a comprehensive tour of Object RPC technology to help you understand the foundations of SOAP and the ways it overcomes many of the limitations of existing technologies, including DCOM and CORBA. This is followed by a detailed treatment of the SOAP encoding rules with a focus on how SOAP maps onto existing ORPC concepts.

"Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content"


Our search is not working. The crawl log indicates following error: "Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content, or add a crawl rule to crawl this content. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)".


If I check the event viewer, it indicates following error: "Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'. [CLIENT: <local machine>]"


My default content access account is another one than this NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE account. The content access account password is correct. Apparently this content access account is translated to the NETWORK SERVICE account upon a crawl. And this network service account doesn't has the appropriate rights on database level. How can I fix this?

protected override void CreateChildControls()
Guid guidSite = SPContext.Current.Site.ID;
Guid guidWeb = SPContext.Current.Web.ID;
    using (SPSite site = new SPSite(guidSite))
        using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb(guidWeb))
  SPList listTest;   
  listTest = web.Lists[ListName]; 
  _multiplelookupKeywords.ListId = listTest.ID;
                _multiplelookupKeywords.ControlMode = SPControlMode.New; //Changing this to SPControlMode.Display works fine
                _multiplelookupKeywords.RenderContext = SPContext.GetContext(web);

IList<detail> objDetail=new List<detail> (); 
IList<master> objMaster = new List<master> ();
string[] sarray = queryFields.Split('|');//

for (int i = 0; i < sarray.Length; i++)
string[] sfields = sarray[i].Split(',');

if (sfields[0] != "")

objDetail.Add(new _detail { Id = count , modify = sfields[1].ToString(), verified = sfields[2], I});


I have problem to add fields in "objDetail" using Add method. But I am unable to access the reference field "Id" , rest of the field of detail table can be accessed using objDetail.

How can I access the "Id" field from objDetail object to add in IList.

I want to solve this problem

Asp.Net upload file access denied



I have the problem below, if anyone can help me, appreciate it.

Server Error in '/' Application.

Access to the path 'c:\Inetpub\EnewsAttFiles\employ-e-header2.jpg' is denied.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'c:\Inetpub\EnewsAttFiles\employ-e-header2.jpg' is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Hig

Access denied to folder in ASP.NET project either though I have granted all users full permissions !



i have made a very simple file upload app, that i want users to be able to upload images to a folder on my server, well localhost for the time being Stick out tongue

here is the simple upload code...

        protected void ButtonRegisterDetails_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            // display properties of the uploaded file 

Access Denied error


I have read several posts where this access denied to path ex.('c:\test' ).  The only way I got this to work was adding <identity impersonate> using my credentials in the web.config file but I don't want to use my credentials all the time.  I have Windows as the authentication mode so why doesn't it work without supplying my credentials?  I tried giving Network Service account write permissions to the folder but that doesn't work either.

Sharepoint site client access denied


I have an sharepoint application which was working fine.

I encountered a license expired message in sql server enterprise evaluation 2008 version after which i changed the date to 2 months earlier date, I have also changed HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\ConfigurationState to 3 after which sql server started working but the issue is that the clients are unable to access the sharepoint site completely. On providing the url the web site requests for logon information and then access is denied. The same url with the same authentication credentials is accessible from the server and the entire application works fine from the server. 

From the  client the below error page appears.

You are not authorized to view this page

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Please try the following:

  • Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
  • Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.

Sharepoint "Access denied"


I'm stuck on the sharepoint access problem now.


We are using Manged Sharepoint 2007 (a hosted version of Microsoft® Windows SharePoint Services 2007) provided by a hosting company.

With the sharepoint site, some of users can not access the site. Message:

Access denied.

You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource


It does not offer any logon prompt.


Users who can not access the sharepoint site are usually sitting in a LAN. I think it might be blocked by their policy. Am I right? Why do they need to block this site?


Please help me with this question.
